Ah, I see. The problem is we would be adding a dependency to stlport
*always* and in theory we are hoping to get rid of it ;-).

There is no option to do --without-stlport or to skip for debug builds
in our Windows build, right? :(

I don't really have a problem. I have been considering two alternatives
instead of getting rid of stlport:
1) There are patches to build the latest version of stlport with clang.
2) a bugzilla issue suggests apache stdcxx.

Both are very difficult to implement but it's not clear that simply removing
stlport and replacing it with more dependencies on boost is the way to

In sum... yes, go ahead and add the dependency but note it carefully
in the commit log so we are able to find it if we need to know later on.
