   This does not seem to be a Boost Build issue so you might get
more/better responses on the Boost library users list.

   If you really do want to remove Boost Build from the failing build
just to make sure your can run bjam with the -d2 option to see the exact
command line used and then use that same command line manually from the

   But my guess is that to solve this problem you need to delve into the
error_code.cpp module and see what exactly is causing the error. At
first glance it seems that some strerror identifier is not a member of
the stlport library. If this is a 'standard' problem perhaps googling
can help.

   Hopefully someone else can provide more precise help.

   Hope this helps.
