Boost-Build :

I decided to play around with the latest version of quickbook using Windows

I cd into "tools\quickbook" and run bjam. It takes a while and spits out an
executable. After some investigation I realize it built both the debug and
release variants with msvc-8.0 however the directory it built to was:
I would have expected:
I wasn't sure it had used the msvc-8.0 toolset or built release at the time
so I used bjam variant=release toolset=msvc-8.0 to make sure.

Intestingly to me it did a large recompile but after also compiling with
toolset=msvc-7.1 and comparing executables I determined that it had in fact
originally used the msvc-8.0 toolset.

So why when defaulting to the msvc-8.0 toolset during the original build did
it not use the msvc-8.0 directory name?
