Normally (and unless I am wrong, I am not very knowledgable about C++)
STLport shouldn't be needed on fedora, since the native templates are
enough. Wouldn't hurt to have STPport in fedora though. It is in Dries,
and I succesfully used Dries spec file on fedora devel some time ago.

Not acceptable, since modified versions cannot be sold.

I don't know how this could be handled, but it could be in EPEL, maybe
like OLPC only packages.

Maybe coordinate with other repos, that is avoid packaging it in fedora
if it may be in another repo where the BR is possible.
