Boost-Build :

I'd like to propose two changes to msvc.jam. First:

actions compile.c bind RSP
$(.CC) /Zm800 -nologo -TC -U$(UNDEFS) $(CFLAGS) $(USER_CFLAGS)
@"$(RSP:W)" -c -Fo"$(<[1]:W)" && del "$(RSP)"
actions compile.c++ bind RSP
$(.CC) /Zm800 -nologo -TP -U$(UNDEFS) $(CFLAGS) $(USER_CFLAGS)
@"$(RSP:W)" -c -Fo"$(<[1]:W)"

It seems that '&& del "$(RSP)"' has been forgotten in the c++ action.

Second: version 1.39 changed the check

if [ MATCH ^(8) : $(version) ]


if ! [ MATCH ^([67]\..*) : $(version) ]

This breaks our build system which uses the toolset name 'msvc-6'. I
changed it to

if ! [ MATCH ^([67]\.?.*) : $(version) ]

but maybe another regular expression is more appropriate.
