OK, looked into it... This is a combination of two bits of code:

1. In the vc7.1-stlport-tools.jam there is this:

# STLPort doesn't support <stlport-iostream>off with vc7.
# This is essentially a usage-requirement on the stlport library.
local gBUILD_PROPERTIES = [ difference $(gBUILD_PROPERTIES) :
<stlport-iostream>off ] <stlport-iostream>on ;

That makes it so that regardless of what your set as the BUILD
stlport-iostreams are always on for vc71. Even if the variant has the
../stlport-iostreams-off/.. subdir. And..

2. In boost-base.jam there is this:

# <stlport-iostream> is always on, no matter what we may think
# this is an stlport build requirement.
runtime-tag = [ difference $(runtime-tag) : n ] ;

Which removes the "n" from the tag to compensate for #1 above.

So in a way it's doing the correct things. But it's also misleading.
