This is still not enough information. In V2, you can do:

  using intel-win : 8.0-vc6 : : <compatibility>vc6 ;
  using intel-win : 8.0-vc7 : : <compatibility>vc7 ;

And "8.0-vc6" and "8.0-vc7" will be the version in library name. If that
version are equal to what autolinking wants, there should be no problem.

Maybe, you can start with V2? Add

  using intel-win ;
  using stlport ;

to tools/build/v2/user-config.jam, go to tools/build/v2/example/hello, run,

  bjam intel-win stdlib=stlport

and report any problem there are. Details on configuring toolsets are in
comment in user-config.jam and in output of:

  bjam --v2 --help intel-win.init
  bjam --v2 --help stlport.init
