Subject: Re: [Boost-build] howto define my own toolset

You'd have to encode that information inside the version, like:
using gcc : 5.2-cpp11 ;
Though, why would not use features for that? E.g.:
feature std : optional composite : cxx11 ;
feature.compose : <std>cxx11 : <cxxflags>whatever ;
We probably need to add such feature in the base system.
