From: Michael Opdenacker <michael.opdenacker@bootlin.com>

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

Signed-off-by: Michael Opdenacker <michael.opdenacker@bootlin.com>
Reported-by: Quentin Schulz <foss@0leil.net>


Changes in V2:
- Remove the manual redirection
  The consequence is that BBPATH will no longer be listed
  in the Yocto variable index.
