AOL. We use a slightly patched 1.32 here (mostly so that it works with
embedded Visual C++ cross compilers) and also fixed above issue, working with
is without problems now. The final libnames need to be fixed, AFAIR, the
rules for the naming are laid out in that file. To me it isn't even worth a

A totally different thing is the STLport version which in fact is giving me
big headaches as STLport 5 dropped tags like the compiler name from their DLL
name. So, no way to install STLport for different compilers alongside each
other anymore. I tried to lobby for this feature but the voices against were
stronger. Anyway, it needs to be taken into consideration.
