Yes, that is why I didn't add more STLport configurations to the
tests, yet. However, STLport's support for debugging is certainly an
interesting feature to use for many developers. So, there would still
be good use for STLport with recent gcc versions.

Thanks for this information, Uli!

It seems, adding STLport/any recent gcc version to the tests makes
only limited sense at the moment. I'm inclined not to add such a
configuration, now.
