It's not that sure, in general, because "using msvc : default ; " can some
from site-config.jam while "using msvc : 7.1 ; " can some from
user-config.jam, and we'd need a way for user-config.jam to overrided
anything specified in site-config.jam. However, that's a separate task

Do I understand correctly that this patch is done, and the next thing to
review is amd64/ia64 support?
