However, if there's no difference between:



   ./ --with-python=/usr

why instruct the user to use --with-python=/usr. That instruction
cause me to look at my system to see where python was located, and
then I wondered why that would be needed. That caused me to
examine ./ and it wasn't obvious what use there was in
using --with-python. So, although the documentation is
correct in that it produces the desired bjam executable,
it leads people to needlessly wonder whether /usr is the
correct value (some may have python installed elsewhere).
