Boost-Build :

gcc has the ability to select a specific version
by means of the -Vx.y.z switch.

It seems that something similar is possible in
user-config.jam by explicitly naming the versioned
executable file.

On windows this is problematic since the versioned
executables for mingw lack the exe suffix (strange
but true). So the only way would be to specify
something like

g++ -V3.4.5

to select the correct version. Unfortunately boost-build
does not allow this :-(

I tried to use the <cxxflags>-V3.4.5 but then the compiler
driver complains about the -V not being the first
option on the command line.

Any ideas?
