Subject: [Boost-build] user-config.jam vs project-config.jam

I can't help noticing that the install documentation talks a lot about
some user-config.jam file while really generate
project-config.jam (which is not mentioned in the doc build section
unless I'm mistaken).

Even in, it does not seems to be that clear:

# Generate user-config.jam
echo "Generating Boost.Build configuration in project-config.jam..."
cat > project-config.jam<<EOF
# Boost.Build Configuration
# Automatically generated by

So, it seems to me that if I want to explain how to configure a specific
Boost library, I need to mention that the configuration needs to be done
in project-config.jam.

Right ?
