I honestly don't get this... No source code appears to change, but the
documentation somehow needs to be regenerated? Or does moving a .jam
file to a different directory cause macros to become uppercase? Or is
this commit a bunch of orthogonal changes bundled together?

Unless your documentation source is the HTML itself, committing
documentation output will necessarily introduce noise as it modifies
both the source and the target. But then we would be talking static
documentation, not generated documentation.
