Right, yes #include <algorithm> was the right fix. I pushed that last
night, so it should be good now. You're instincts were correct.

Nah, Ignore the stl implementation behind the curtain (For linux its
only behind the curtain for x86 anyway). You generally don't need to
worry about doing anything special for the stlport using ports, just
#include <thenormalname> and its all taken care of, so indeed #include
<algorithm> is good.
