OK, I'll change it. But...
Regardless of the name, copying and renaming locally didn't work. The
regression.py script deleted the file when it unzipped the fresh Boost tree.
Also, depending on the exact toolset name is error prone and requires manual
intervention every new compiler version. Too easy for a compiler to be
upgraded, but the tool name not updated.
compiler_status used to get the compiler version from the config
information. That was automatic and reliable. Any idea why it was changed?
