Thank you, that helped a lot :) I am now able to compile and run test
with bjam using stlport.

Unfortunately there are still two nasty problems.

(1) For some but not all the test projects I get the error

failed to write output file:
'<path to bin.v2 subdirectory>\<test-target>.obj.rsp'!

bjam toolset... --clean

did not help nor manually deleting bin.v2-subdirectories. Seems like
projects with longer names are affected.

(2) When compiling with the ms-workbench, the linker now finds the
right lib-files but I still get an unresolved reference:

class stlpd_std::basic_string
  <char,class stlpd_std::char_traits<char>,
   class stlpd_std::allocator<char> >
__cdecl boost::unit_test::ut_detail::normalize_test_case_name
  (class boost::unit_test::basic_cstring<char const >)"
referenced in function
  "class boost::unit_test::test_case *
    __cdecl boost::unit_test::make_test_case
        (class boost::unit_test::callback0
           <struct boost::unit_test::ut_detail::unused> const &,
         class boost::unit_test::basic_cstring<char const >)"

In both instances I have no idea what to do.
Any help appreciated.
