No I'm not sure... If you are using Boost 1.31 then the default is
*off*. If you are using the current CVS state then the default is *on*
(and the docs need to change). Which version are you using?

It only prints that text, along with other text you did not quote, when
it thinks you did not setup the stlport toolset correctly. It has
nothing to do with whether iostreams are on or off.

The text says that iostreams are off by default. Which is correct for
1.31 but not for current CVS.

Replace the file by the same name in your Boost tree:
boosr-root/tools/build/v1/msvc-stlport-tools.jam -- And then use the
same commands you normally use.
