If you already have initial qcc.jam for V2, can you try to follow the steps

Oh, that looks complex. So, 'qcc' is not a compiler in itself, but rather more
high-level tool for building binaries for QNX?

Yes, I think all we need to to be able to run the regression tests with V2,
with the same confication as in V1. Advanced features can be implemented
