I can't find much info about gCURRENT_TOOLSET, but from
what I've gathered seems like this global var holds
the name of the current toolset in the sequence of
toolsets provided to bjam with -sTOOLS=...

However, seems I'm missing something. I've changed
a simple Jamfile to echo the following at the beginning


and then issued the bjam command

bjam "-sTOOLS=GCC msvc"

I'd expect to see gcc and msvc echoed in turn, yet what
I get is:
$ bjam "-sTOOLS=GCC msvc"
...found 424 targets...
...updating 16 targets...
[rest of the process dealing with both gcc and msvc]

So, looks like gCURRENT_TOOLSET is not being
updted properly on every toolset processed!
Am I missing something? Thanks for your help,
