The reason for this error is, that using stlport causes the
BOOST_NO_STDC_NAMESPACE macro beeing defined.

In turn the numeric/ublas complains about this. So since this is a real
error, perhaps a better message (at least less surprising) would be:

#error : Your compiler and/or configuration is unsupported ...

@volodya: I'll mark this up as expected. At least the stlport 4 really
is old and unsupported.
