Thanks Steven, that lead me in the right direction. Above should work
just fine, the real problem is me not understanding how the syntax for
specifying multiple toolsets.

Here is what I thought was correct (but is not) :

Define multiple using statements in my user-config.jam, so both gcc
and intel-linux is defined.

But if gcc is not defined first then it fails :

gcc.compile.c++ bin/gcc/release/address-model-32/threading-multi/sulumnetc.o
/bin/sh: -ftemplate-depth-128: not found

Clearly the toolset is not set up properly and I am sure it's my
fault, how should I set the toolset up in my user-config.jam ?
