     <para>It is desirable to declare standard libraries available on a
       given system. Putting target declaration in Jamfile is not really
       good, since locations of the libraries can vary. The solution is
- to put the following to site-config.jam.</para>
+ to declare the targets in site-config.jam:</para>
-import project ;
-project.initialize $(__name__) ;
 project site-config ;
 lib zlib : : &lt;name&gt;z ;
- <para>The second line allows this module to act as project. The
- third line gives id to this project &#x2014; it really has no location
- and cannot be used otherwise. The fourth line just declares a
- target. Now, one can write:
+ <para>Recall that both <filename>site-config.jam</filename> and
+ <filename>user-config.jam</filename> are projects, and everything
+ you can do in a Jamfile you can do in those files. So, you declare
+ a project id and a target. Now, one can write:
 exe hello : hello.cpp /site-config//zlib ;
