There the following is a fragment of msvc.jam:
if [ os.name ] = NT
setup = $(setup)"
setup = "cmd /S /C "$(setup)" \"&&\" " ;
Does "else" branch really means [ os.name ] = CYGWIN ?
Why cmd approach isn't used everywhere? Is it due to overhead of
execution a new instance of cmd.exe, or there are other reasons too?
