Your patch to stlport.hpp breaks VC6 + STLport 4.5.3 (it now thinks that
long long is supported when it's not). IMO you don't need that patch: the
new config/suffix.hpp should take care of everything.
IMO the patch to conversion_traits.hpp should be removed as well: the MS
specific version of is_convertible has #pragma warning suppression that the
generic version lacks (otherwise either version is equally good).
