wow, politeness helps :).

svn trunk actually had a different error, complaining about stlport rules.

diag in svn trunk errors helped me find at least some errors. There
seemed to be missing a semi colon in STLport using statement, and extra
arguments in the STLport using statement for this particular toolset.

now I get a different error about not being able to find cl.exe... will
try and troubleshoot later today.
