It looks like this stuff was added in version 1.49 of gcc-tools.jam
by David Abrahams in the v1 tree:

This file was just copied to the gcc.jam file in v2.

I don't know what the motivation was for that change, nor why
it breaks mingw now.

Do you have cygwin and mingw on your system, so you can test
with both compilers?
