The thing is the original version trampled all over STLPORT_VERSION each
time the toolset was invoked, resetting it to the default value each time.
I'll be honest I don't actually understand why that line is in there -
except that without it <stlport-version> gets ignored; as long as the macro
name is something that's unused though it all works. If you have a better
patch that's fine by me, but please make sure that STLPORT_VERSION is
actually honored - as it is at present.
