gcc-stlport toolset


Boost.Build's gcc-stlport toolset supports the GNU GCC compiler using STLport as a replacement to the GNU libg++.

Configuration Variables

The gcc-stlport toolset responds to the following variables which can be set in the environment or configured on the jam command-line using -sVARIABLE_NAME=value. This toolset is an extension to the gcc toolset and therefore responds to all of the GCC configuration variables in addition to those listed below.
Variable Name Semantics Default Notes
STLPORT_ROOT Path to installation of STLport. (none) It is customary to set this in your "Jamrules" file.
STLPORT_INCLUDE_DIRECTORY The name of the directory within the STLport installation containing the header files. stlport  
STLPORT_LIB_DIRECTORY The name of the directory withint the STLport installation containing the built libraries. lib
