second paragraph 'see the full build system documentation` should be
hyperlinked to the full build system doc.

in the `Tools available` section, some toolsets use a different font
(are not inbetween <code> </code>).

When referring to the prebuilt jam executables, I would refer to them as
jamboost instead of just jam. Otherwise, people might think that a
perforce jam executable will do also.

I would phrase it like : "The system is an extension of <a
href="...">Perforce Jam</a>, a portable make replacement". The link is
now obvious.
