Boost-Build :

I'm using two different releases of the Borland compiler which I configured in
user-config.jam as follows:

using borland : 5.6.4 : "C:/Program Files/Borland/CBuilder6/Bin/bcc32" ;
using borland : 5.8.2 : "C:/Program Files/Borland/BDS/4.0/Bin/bcc32" ;

When I build a RC_1_34_0 branch snapshot from this morning with the following

bjam --v2 toolset=borland-5.8.2 stage

libraries are given names which lack the compiler release suffix, e.g.


instead of


Am I doing anything wrong or is it a Boost.Build/toolset problem?

I noticed that building with toolset=msvc-8.0 does insert the corresponding
release number in the libraries' names.

Would it be possible to have a three digit suffix used instead of the two digit
one used by BBv1? For some compilers the third digit is significant, not only
Borland's but also gcc.
