>From the tutorial:

When we refer to a &#x201C;Jamfile,&#x201D; set in normal
type, we mean a file called either
<filename>Jamfile</filename> or
<filename>Jamroot</filename>. When we need to be more
specific, the filename will be set as
&#x201C;<filename>Jamfile</filename>&#x201D; or

This is an example of the sort of confusion that could be avoided if we
didn't have a separately-named root file.
