Agreed, as a matter of fact I often wish there was a tool available for
checking that all needed headers have actually been included (rather than
included by accident as a hidden dependency).

OK good, the msvc-stlport toolset is working with STLport-5 at present, but
the others aren't I believe.

Last time I looked I couldn't figure an easy way to make lexical_cast happy
in that situation, I'll try and have another look, because we really should
support this mode if we can (and the rest of Boost does I believe).
