('binary' encoding is not supported, stored as-is) For msvc boost-build call command file vcvarsall.bat that prepare environment
variables, but for gcc it cannot be setuped a command for preparing environment.
So, we can write "b2 toolset=msvc-10.0,msvc-11.0" but cannot use gcc this way
("b2 toolset=gcc-A,gcc-B").
Is it a bug?
