I'm trying to find a replacement for

if [ ] = NT



but all the equivalents seem to use

if <target-os>windows in $(properties)

where 'properties' is passed in as parameter.
Is there simpler syntax that doesn't require a property set ?

There is no such toolset as gcc-cygwin. The
only way to get this is if someone puts

using gcc : cygwin ;

in a Jamfile.

The correct way to identify this is
<toolset>gcc,<target-os>cygwin, or
perhaps just <target-os>cygwin.
