I don't know how to make it consistent, because the approach is
different. toolset.compile.* rules you see in other toolsets are
called by generators, and cc-compile rule is a "local" msvc rule
(marked with "local" keyword) called from those compile.* rules.

Moreover, you will see the same rule for .cpp, .c and .pch builds.

Maybe Vladimir will be able to tell what is better to do and how to
name these internal rules to make the diagnostic messages easier to
