Wouldn't that make it hard to test multiple different toolsets on the
same machine?

I'm looking at the notes by the folx doing regression testing on darwin.
One of them (Sandia-leopard-x86) says:

Command Line invoked as follows (trailing carets are line
continuation characters)
        python --runner="Sandia-leopard-x86"
--bjam-toolset=darwin ^
          --pjl-toolset=darwin --toolsets="darwin-4.0.1 intel-10.1"

Now I'm even more confused. What's the difference between
"" and ""?
I see that the page at
talks about "", except that it mentions "" once,
in the "patching boost sources" section.

Is that page the correct place to get instructions?
