File this question in the just-curious folder:
In constructing a toolset with two variants, say d1 and d2, which both inherit from a base toolkit, say b, I was surprised that suffix bindings in toolset b, such as
type.set-generated-target-suffix EXE : <toolset>b : "txe" ;
type.set-generated-target-suffix OBJ : <toolset>b : o ;
are not propagated to the derived toolsets (d1 and d2) which say:
toolset.inherit d1 : b ;
toolset.inherit d2 : b ;
respectively. I have to say in d1.jam :
type.set-generated-target-suffix EXE : <toolset>d1 : "txe" ;
type.set-generated-target-suffix OBJ : <toolset>d1 : o ;
to get the desired sufix bindings.
Was it intentional not to pass along suffix bindings to derived toolsets?
