Boost-Build :

I just checked in changes to HEAD that make it possible for most
people to build without ever editing a user-config.jam or
site-config.jam. Now you can specify the toolset on the command-line
as follows:

   bjam toolset=gcc-4.1


   bjam --toolset=gcc-4.1

Also, if you don't specify or configure any toolset, it currently
chooses msvc on Windows and gcc everywhere else, while issuing a
warning. That's a pretty crude heuristic; I welcome improvements.

Please try this feature out. If everyone is happy on Monday we can
move it to the release branch.
