Boost-Build :

I have:

alias test : test-cygwin : <toolset>gcc ;
alias test : test-win32 : <toolset>msvc ;

I get this:

warning: toolset gcc initialization: can't find tool g++
warning: initialized from
C:/code/bin/boost-build/build\targets.jam:756: in generate-really from
module object(main-target)@68
error: failed to build ./test with properties <debug-symbols>on

C:\code\bin\boost-build\kernel\bootstrap.jam:121: in boost-build from module
C:\code\bin\boost-build.jam:6: in module scope from module

I also tried:

alias test : test-cygwin : <os>CYGWIN ;
alias test : test-win32 : <os>NT ;

I get similar log with this too. So how do I get boost-build to select
alternatives based on the host OS or the toolset -- either one will work for
me, at least for now...
