Yep, so many tests, so little time :-)

I may have been a bit premature in suggesting this: STLport have changed
their lib naming convention in this release, which means stlport.jam doesn't
produce the right command line for linking any more, someone's promised a
patch I believe, but we're not there yet. If someone is keen to get going
in the mean time, then a custom toolset that just uses the "difference" rule
to strip out the old stlport lib names would work. Also make sure you get
STLport-5.0-RC4 (from, it fixes a
lot of issues compared to RC2 which is what's linked to from the stlport
home page.
