Sorry for the delayed response, I'm in the middle of takling Win32 & cross DLL
memory problems :-(

Those lines where reseting the values AFTER they where set by the <sysinclude>
use. Which is why I changed the GCC tools to put the includes in the system
path "-isystem" which places them before any defaults of the compiler.
Unfortunately I only have GCC on Linux to test this with so I don't know
wether this works in the other GCC installations :-( And at least for me (on

I'll try and see if I can make both of them work together, probably using a
different variable that the other tools use, like STLPORT_INCLUDE_DIRECTORY

Hmmm, don't know why I did that... I don't even remeber doing that change :-\
I know I changed the literal version number that was on the dynamic version
because to me it made more sense to point to the symbolic link instead of the
specific version. Which thinking about it would cause problems with stlport
system that don't generate the symlink during the build. So that change would
also not work on non-*nix types like Windows with GCC.

Which begs the question, which I saw someplace else, probably in the TODOs, of
better support for stlport than using the tools approach. Because as it is it
will never work for everyone :-(
