Oops, that's a documentation issue. You can say something like

using stlport : /usr/include/stlport : /opt/lib ;

to specify /opt/lib as location of stlport library. In general, if

using something ...

is given, you can look at rule "init" in something.jam to figure out what
configuration parameters can be passed.

Would adding -Wl,-rpath *anywhere* in the command line help? I though that
no, in which case this feature cannot be implemented immediately.

Oh, damn! I've changed some interface for the sake of stlport toolset, and
that broke qt. Really, plain regression tests are not enough -- have to
test examples too. Should be fixed now.

Yea, that's what I though is right. Maybe it's just bad luck, but I get linker
errors, and if I add "-lpthread" I only reduce the number of them. Maybe some
configuration problem here.
