Since the build now only produces a "bjam" executable, and not a "jam"
executable, I suggest that the following change be made to

<p>The built executables are placed in a subdirectory specific to your
platform. For example, in Linux running on an Intel x86 compatible chip,
- the executables are placed in: <tt>"bin.linuxx86"</tt>. There are two
- executables generated: <tt>jam[.exe]</tt>, and <tt>bjam[.exe]</tt>, both
- are the same binary but with different names. The "jam" invocation is used
- for compatability with the Perforce Jam/MR functionality, whereas "bjam" is
- used for the extended Boost.Build functionality.</p>
+ the executables are placed in: <tt>"bin.linuxx86"</tt>.
+ The <tt>bjam[.exe]</tt> executable can be used to invoke Boost.Build.</p>

<p>The <tt>build</tt> scripts support additional invocation arguments for
use by developers of Boost.Jam. The extra arguments come after the toolset,
