Oh, I did not realize it's one-liner. I think it's perfectly fine, that's
how property propagation generally works. Steven, feel free to commit this.

OTOH, it seems like we have *two* workarounds:

1. Explicitly specify the location of quickbook binary in "using quickbook".
2. Do not use the <dependency> feature in doc Jamfile of accumulators library,
as the ticket claims such <dependency> is not actually necessary.

So, if anybody wants to get doc building working sooner than the fix
is checked in, you know what to do ;-)
