Short answer:
1. Go to tools/build/v2/tools/stage.jam
2. Find rule "rename"
3. Change the line:

        if <runtime-build>debug in $(properties) { runtime-tag += g ; }


        if <runtime-debugging>on in $(properties) { runtime-tag += g ; }

Long answer: for some reason, the name of feature in V2 is not the same as the
name of feature in V1. The code to add the letters, however, was copy-pasted
from V1 and was not changed accordingly.

In fact, I think it's best to change the feature name in V2 to match V1, to
avoid confusion. Thoughts?
