Boost-Build :

I am working with a legacy codebase and would like to compile
it with jam. For some bone-headed reason, my codebase
has a lot of C++ files which end with ".c" instead of ".cpp" or ".cc".

Ideally I would like to change these file extensions, but
because this is a large codebase compiled on different platforms,
I may not be able to do this easily.

I notice in gcc.jam, there is a line:

generators.register-c-compiler gcc.compile.c : C : OBJ : <toolset>gcc ;

Is there a way to override this so that it invokes
g++ also, for files ending in .c?

Sorry for this question, but my legacy codebase has a lot of
silly things in it. :(
