You are correct that Windows CE does not supply the strerror function in
its scaled down C runtime libraries. To remedy this situation, we have
actually written basic implementations of a handful of the missing CRT
functions (including strerror) and added them to our local STLport 5.2.1
libraries. At some point, I intend to propose these for formal
inclusion into STLport, but I haven't had time so far.

Even with our CRT adjustments, some Boost libraries require special
changes to deal with ideosyncracies of the Windows CE OS (like the lack
of a current filesystem directory). In some cases, we have implemented
these changes (typically for libraries we use on WinCE here) but for
other libraries we have not yet assessed what is necessary to make the
library function correctly on WinCE.
