I've done some more digging, and I'm afraid this toolset really does appear
to be broken:

1) If you use the <compatibility> option on one Intel toolset you have to
use it on all of them (I have more than one).
2) The compatibility option gets ignored anyway: -Qvc8 is *still* passed to
the compiler even when <compatibility>vc7.1 is specified.
3) When no <compatibility> option is specified then the -Qvc8 option is
still used: it shouldn't be, we should respect the users default setup in
this case.
4) I know I'm not a bjam expert, but I'm reasonably sure I'm not a total
idiot (not quite yet anyway!), so if I can't get this to work, what chance a
newbie who's never seen bjam before?

Still frustrated, yours, John.
