Should it? I think that sun experts (Hi Simon!) told that it changes ABI,
and old code does not use stlport, so having sun-stlport as default stdlib
is not good idea. Of course, I probably totally misremember things; we
can probably make stdlib=sun-stlport the default, at least when building
C++ Boost itself.
