So, it's adding path to gcc library directories? Why exactly this is needed?
Can you add this directory to global LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and if no, why?

Say, if I build an application with gcc-4.0.2 and it won't run right away
because gcc libraries are not in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, then the compiler is not
fully usable. Boost.Build can work around this, but is it better than putting
extra directory to LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

BTW, can you also tell how you configure gcc-4.0.2 with V1? That is, what's
the content of the toolset file?
