Ok, the libraries seem fine, assuming they reside in the directories you
specified in the user-config.jam file.

Another suggestion. Do the errors only mention wchar_t versions of STL API? In
VS2003, by default the compiler used wchar_t typedef instead of making it a
distinct type. Boost.Build adds /Zc:wchar_t so that the compiler treats
wchar_t as a distinct type. But was this parameter present when you compiled
STLPort? You can open STLPort dlls in dependency walker to see whether they
export symbols with wchar_t or unsigned short in their signature.
