I guess you're thinking of the links to stlport from the Boost Build v1
documentation, such as:

But Boost Build v1 has been removed so it's no longer in CVS. I'm not sure
what's happening to it when 1.34 is released.

There's also a link in 'libs/config/config.htm'. And some links to stlport
in '/more/generic_exception_safety.html' but they point to documents that
don't seem to be on the sourceforge site and refer to work on early
versions of STLport, so they should probably be left alone.

The links in the Boost.Python documentation are referring to STLPort 4.5.3
- so it might be best to leave them alone.

In the patch you changed the links to the sourceforge project page
(, I think the new home page
would be a friendlier ( Hopefully that's
okay with you?

I changed the subject to try to get the attention of the relevant library
maintainers, any objections to changing the links? If I don't hear any,
I'll go ahead and do it. I've attached an updated patch for build,
compatibility and config.

Also, would it be okay to add these changes to 1.34?
