Stlport was not built with wchar_t support (this is the

You have two choices to work around this issue.

You can rebuild stlport with wchar_t support by adding
/Zc:wchar_t to the makefile and then build date_time with:
(from $boost_root)
bjam -a "-sTOOLS=vc-7_1-stlport" "-sSTLPORT_PATH=..."
     --stagedir=... --with-date_time stage

Or, you can build date_time w/o wstrings:

bjam -a "-sTOOLS=vc-7_1-stlport" "-sSTLPORT_PATH=..."
     --stagedir=... --with-date_time stage(adjust the elipses

--as posted on list by Bart on the dev list
