I strongly suggest you get the latest STLport beta. It's a complete standard
library implementation and our experience shows that -fhonor-std doesn't
work right even if you *could* get rid of the broken std lib they supply.
The STLport lets you write conforming code by putting everything into a
namespace _STL and spoofing std:

#define std _STL

Code written to assume names are in std:: seems to work perfectly.
