The question is "which" is the full name for this case?

As previous discussion has shown you specify the mingw compiler
e.g. as bjam toolset=gcc-3.4 but end up with gcc-mingw since the build
engine automatically detects mingw.

Now when it comes to markup:
Will the markup be able to detect this particular case, although the
toolset has been specified as gcc only on the command line?

Hmm, I will just try it out, and see if the marks are appearing on the
correct compiler. I have no idea how I could find this out otherwise.
I was suspecting, that for the regression tests the toolset name that
was given on the command line is being used, but I'll see...
