Hi Richard,

Boost.Build does not use environmental variables like INCLUDE, and I don't
think it should --- env. vars are too hard to control and they apply to all
compilers and projects.

To use stlport in Boost.Build V1, with vc 7.1, you'd need to write a new
toolset, which extends vc 7.1, like it's done with 6.0.

Somewhat simpler way is to tweak STLPort support in Boost.Build V2 --- STLPort
works only with gcc now. Are you willing to try it?
