The configure script is "autoconf-like" because it looks like
autoconf, but it isn't. It's just a shell script that compiles bjam
for you, converts autoconf-style options into bjam options, and
produces a short Makefile that merely calls bjam with the right
incantations. As David A. says, we don't want to duplicate the build
system, but the demand for "./configure && make && make install" was
too great to ignore.
