Boost-Build :

We're trying to figure out how to deploy boost internally so we can
easily support multiple development toolsets. We want to configure
some toolsets, like gcc, to use different Fortran compilers with
different versions of the C++ compilers. Here's a brief list of what
we want to support on our Linux platforms.

using gcc : 3.4.3 ; # use g77
using gcc : 4.0 ; # use gfortran

using pgi : 5.2 ;
using pgi : 6.0 ;

using intel : 8.0 ;
using intel : 9.0 ;

using pathscale : 2.3.1 ;

How should we configure our boost/build to give our developers the
flexibility to build with whatever toolset they choose on Linux?
Should it be done through the site-config.jam and user-config.jam files
and, if so, how? Note that we're thinking of having the boost
distribution on a networked file system so all users will use the same
boost build (easier to maintain I hope).
