I think mingw with stlport would be an interesting combination to test. I
believe Rene did some work recently to improve mingw, and also reported some
issues with STLport.

Can you start by going to say, tools/build/v2/example/libraries and running

   bjam --v2 gcc-3.4.5_mingw stdlib=stlport

? If that goes well, let me know and I'll modify so that you can

   --toolsets="gcc-3.4.5_mingw stdlib=stlport,msvc-8.0"

or something. At the moment, embedded space in between toolset name and
stlport will confuse things.

Rene, does your recent report mean that STLport variants should be tested in
<threading>multi mode? I'm not quite sure what V1 does -- will it link to
STLport even if you request single threading, or what?
