Boost-Build :

With bbv1 I used the toolset names "qcc-3.3.5-cpp" and "qcc-3.3.5-qpp"
which decodes roughly as

<qnx toolchain> - <gcc compiler version> - <C++ std lib variant>

Now with bbv2 if I try to construct a toolset name from the base toolset
"qcc" with variant/version "3.3.5-cpp" it fails due to the use of a
hyphen, so I have to change it to an underscore i.e. "3.3.5_cpp".

The problem here is that all the bbv1 entries in
explicit-failures-markup.xml no longer work for bbv2. :-(

Before I hack the xml file I thought I woukd just check that the above
is correct and there is no way I can construct bbv2 toolset names that
are compatible with bbv1.

PS Volodya - I had some machine problems recently so I thought I would
jump straight in with bbv2. It seems to be OK. Thanks for your help.
