I'm using m10 with the latest bjam. I'm a new user so I apologize if
this is a FAQ, but I couldn't find the answer anywhere.

I'm trying to use the gcc.jam with a Sony supplied version of gcc. The
target executable files need to have the extension "prx", rather than
"exe". Is there a way to change that from the "using" line? Adding

type.set-generated-target-suffix EXE : <toolset>gcc : prx ;

to gcc.jam worked fine, but I couldn't find the syntax to do that
outside of the file.

Also, it would be nice to automatically try the appropriate platform
extension for executable files when searching the path. It took me a
while to figure out why

using gcc : : psp-g++ ;

gave me

warning: toolset gcc initialization:
warning: can't find user-provided command 'psp-g++'

though perhaps it's obvious to most people.
