Hi Jürgen,

I don't know :-) I think that I'd need some help from you in doing it.

The first thing to determine is how those names are computed. Do they depend
only on toolset? Or one should be able to configure them?

The first case is pretty simple. One will introduce a new rule in
'stlport.jam', which will take a list of properties and return the library

In the second case, the 'init' rule for stlport.jam should accept some
additional parameters, and the rule returning the name should use them, too.

In either case, the complexity depends on how library names are determined --
there's little Boost.Build internals to fight with :-)
