Actually, after looking at this a bit more closely,
I would recommend that as part of any package,
you put any default settings such as "using gcc ;"
inside site-config.jam.

It's not a big deal, but on multi-user systems, this would
indicate that site-config.jam is a "system-level" setting.

I would also recommend that in site-config.jam, in addition
to the default settings (such as using gcc ;), you
put a comment indicating that the settings in
site-config.jam can be overridden by putting
a user-config.jam in your $HOME directory.
