As reported in [YOCTO #14502], the description of BBPATH in the
Yocto Project Manual is redundant with its description in the
BitBake User Manual.

Without this redirection, the references to BBPATH would still
work, as it this the case for terms only definited in the BitBake
User Manual, but BBPATH would no longer appear in the variable index.

This would probably be a bad thing.
