Are you sure: STLport-4.5.3 has defines std::allocator with:

template <class _Tp>
class allocator {

  typedef _Tp value_type;
  typedef value_type * pointer;
  typedef const _Tp* const_pointer;
  typedef _Tp& reference;
  typedef const _Tp& const_reference;
  typedef size_t size_type;
  typedef ptrdiff_t difference_type;
  template <class _Tp1> struct rebind {
    typedef allocator<_Tp1> other;
# endif
// etc;

so there is no rebind member unless _STLP_MEMBER_TEMPLATE_CLASSES is
defined. BTW I suspect that the test you are refering to does not rely on
this member - however other boost code (notably regex) does do so, as does
the config test for BOOST_NO_STD_ALLOCATOR.

Because the config system needs it in order to figure out what features the
platform supports; I've no idea why your compiler is choking over this, it
really shouldn't: <unistd.h> is mandatory on POSIX platforms, I certainly
don't see why setting an STLport macro would cause this to happen. In
anycase shouldn't STLport configure itself as single threaded unless you
specify -mt (which defines _REENTRANT) when compiling?
