the gcc toolset accepts the 'flavour' option, but does not make any use of it.
Why is it needed?
Also, it accepts the 'archiver' option, and has this comment:
#~ If it's not a system gcc install we should adjust the various
#~ programs as needed to prefer using the install specific versions.
#~ This is essential for correct use of MinGW and for cross-compiling.
This is obviously important if there's no system 'ar'. However, is this
important when there is system 'ar' already? I don't think the 'ar' tool does
any thing that is target specific. Am I wrong?
