The "Autoconfigure" code in build-system.jam has the behaviour to strip the
version apart from the toolset. The code strips everything to the right of the
first hyphen to be the version.
local (t-v,t,v) = [ MATCH (([^-/]+)-?([^/]+)?)/?.* : $(t) ] ;
This has the consequence, that it is impossible to put subfeatures into build
requests on the commandline:
tries to register a new version of the gcc toolset instead of recognizing it as
a subfeature (i.e. flavor) of the gcc toolset.
The following request (which skips the autoconfigure) instead works:
Is this by intent or is it a bug?
