There are lots of (confusingly, and unnecessarily, different) jamfiles about.

I've tried to provide an (over-)annotated version at

which discusses some of issues and settings.

It needs attention from some jam-experts and docs experts.

IMO it would be really helpful to standardise the settings and toolchain so we don't keep

PS There is also discussion about similar on [Boost-docs] Sphinx integration thread.
