Did you resolve this after fixing your STLport install?

It means that it did not create the DLL import libraries for those DLLs.
Many reasons for that to happen, like it failing to create the DLL in
the first place, or the DLL not exporting entry points. Did you get a
warning or error when it was building those DLLs?

A Jamfile like so is usual:

project-root ;

exe test
: test.cpp
: <sysinclude>C:\Boost\include\boost_1_31_0
: debug release ;

Or something like that ;-)
