All errors except for one are fixed. The remaining one is some
docbook/XSLT quirk that does not seem to affect the result.

FWIW, I've just grepped for "bjam" over RC branch. I attach the list of
files that possibly need update. There's one fille that really should be updated
-- separate_compilation.html.

As far as various library docs are concerned, I believe it's a mistake for
those docs to describe building at all, and the docs better refer to the
getting started document. That said, updating the docs should not require
any deep bjam knowledge beyond:
