You've misunderstand what I say above. For your solution to work, we need
to require that 'flavour' or whatever is *fixed* for a given version
configured in user-config.jam. So, if you have "gcc-blahblah' it's always
gcc version 188.8.131.52 targeting cygwin on Z80 processor, whatever OS,
and it's not OK to change any of that using command line flags. Then, of
course, the question is how to document this adequately. See, gcc manual
does not mention any 'flavour' and it's not possible to say if any given
option will change that 'flavour' or not.
