Just for your reference, you don't really need the 3 defines above (not
that it will hurt anything to have them). We are doing some special
stuff with Boost.Proto where we need more than the standard 5 arity so
we run the regression tests with an arity of 10. You probably don't
need this and it might slow down your compile times a bit.

In addition, you should probably be aware that we have slightly modified
the stock release of STLport 5.2.1 and I haven't yet gotten around to
documenting our changes (or attempting to submit them for formal
inclusion in STLport). I should probably include a little blurb about
this in our regression test page to avoid confusion. Beyond some minor
bug fixes, the main change is that we have supplemented STLport with
some basic implementations of some of the CRT functions that WinCE is
missing. These include time, clock, gmtime, localtime, environ, getenv,
remove, rename, wctomb, mbtowc, mblen, strerror, strxfrm, wcsxfrm, and
the errno constants in <errno.h>. Most of these should only be a
problem if you are trying to build certain specific libraries. If you
run into issues, post what you are seeing and I can try to give you
pointers in the right direction.
