Subject: [Boost-build] Wrong target-os with cross-compiler

My computer is running Suse Linux 11.2, and I have the MinGW gcc windows
cross-compiler installed. But when I use the cross-compiler, Boost
Build mistakenly sets the target-os property to "linux" instead of
"windows". So I can't build with just:

bjam toolset=gcc-mingw

I have to do:

bjam toolset=gcc-mingw target-os=windows

Also, because the default is "linux", it adds "target-os-windows" to the
build path.

Shouldn't Boost Build figure out the default target-os automatically?
