I'm pretty sure this is yet another fallout from "--toolset" option and
multiple toolsets.

May I suggest that the "--toolset" change be reverted, and the command line

   borland-5.6.4 borland-5.8.2 msvc-6.5 msvc-7.0 cw-8.3/runtime-link=static

If I understand correctly, change to use "toolset=" or "--toolset" is not a
pressing at all -- the only difference is that "toolset=" and "--toolset"
performs toolset auto-configuration and:

        1. Most testers have perfectly working user-config.jam
        2. Using autoconfiguration for regression tests might be a
        bad idea in general.
