I realise all that: I'm trying to sort out a users problem: somehow he came
up with the --toolset=gcc-nocygwin option and everything built without any
errors, it just didn't do what he thought it would :-(

Experimenting some more, I see that --toolset=gcc-foobar builds as well,
looks like any suffix can be appended without any error from bjam - is this
really the desired behaviour?

Thanks, John.
