The link errors we get with msvc 7.1 and stlport are caused
by wchar_t mismatch. 7.1 defaults to non-native wchar_t and
default stlport build uses that default.
Boost.Build explicitly enables wchar_t as native type,
so when using non-native-wchar_t-build stlport, we get linker errors.

Solutions are:

1. Disable native wchar_t in Boost.Build for STLPort configurations.
2. Build STLPort with native wchar_t

Do folks with practical experience with msvc 7.1 and stlport have
an opinion which one is better?

If (2) is better, is the procedure for buildind stlport with native
wchar_t documented anywhere?
