OK, looks like another thing to be sorted out before release then, we'll get
even more complains about a "non standard build tools" if folks have to
start editing config files before they can start :-(

My gut feeling for Borland then, is to do the same as we did for bbv1 and
not version the toolset name. But, ideally, we should be automatically
detecting what the compiler "really" is and setting it's name accordingly.
I think Dave A. mentioned that the python Jamfile is already doing something
similar, but I don't know the details. Probably a feature for 1.35 that
one, otherwsie we'll never get this one out ;-)
