All the errors seem to relate to wide-character functions, I believe if you
omit the <native-wchar_t>on flag then it should build (it does for me). Or
did you build STLport with /Zc:wchar_t ? If so it's possible we disabled
support for <native-wchar_t>on in the Jamfile given that STLport doesn't
normally support that.

Not that big, I guess no-one has been testing with STLport 5 Beta, I'm sure
bjam will support it once it's released.
