Because that is the way you configure Boost.Build v1 to know about
Python. In BBv2 you put
using python ... ;
in your user-config. See the comment in
tools/build/v2/tools/python.jam for how to invoke it.

BBv2 isn't officially supported by any of the library-specific build
instructions on the Boost website, because it hasn't been released
