You can't, because there's no such things as "selected toolset". Boost.Build
can build your project with 10 variants of 10 toolsets in one invocation, so
it's not clear which one 100 combination is "selected".
Can you detail what are you trying to achieve?

Take a look at the the use of <tag> feature at the top of Boost's Jamfile.v2:
and the "tag" rule further in the file, that handles adding various suffixes
