Subject: [Boost-build] --with-toolset not accepting clang-XY.Z

I'm using Docker with clang (nwtgck/llvm-clang:5.0.0) where there is
no clang alternative configured, but only /usr/bin/clang-5.0.0.

I was surprised to discover that

./ --with-toolset=clang-5.0.0

fails with

./ 17: ./ clang: not found

I assume, similar failure would happen for gcc-7.2, for instance.

Is this known limitation or am I missing any options
or environment variables to the script?

Best regards,
