Yes. One always needs to use the full name of the toolset in the
failures markup. This was one of the issues we resolved for BBv1 vs.
BBv1. BBv2 attempts to make those names consistent. For example:
<>, <>, and
<> are the MinGW toolsets that are currently
being tested for 1.34.

Also of note is that for conditions, i.e. for specifying compilers
specific build options, in Jamfiles one can use "gcc" to refer to all
flavors of GCC. And use "gcc-mingw" to refer to only the MinGW flavor.
