:-) Now how is it "auto-detecting" "gcc" as the toolset?

I just added a "--show-configuration" option:

=== bjam --v2 -n --show-configuration nothing
notice: <toolset>msvc-8.0
notice: <toolset>msvc-7.1
notice: <toolset>gcc-3.4.5-mingw_special
notice: <toolset>gcc-3.4.5~mingw~stlport50-mingw_special
notice: <toolset>gcc-3.4.5~mingw~stlport51-mingw_special

Perhaps just making the tests do a regex comparison would be more
useful, or easier to implement?
