c++.stl.port - OPTLINK: Error 118: Filename Expected

I have setup stlport as defined by the readme.txt file under dm\stlport.
yet when I try to compile the hello.cpp file that comes with the stlport
distribution located on the digital mars download page I get the following
D:\C__BOO~1>d:\c++_stuff\digitalmars\dm\bin\sc hello.cpp -ID:\C++_STUFF\digitalm
link hello,,,user32+kernel32/noi;
OPTLINK (R) for Win32  Release 7.50B1

OPTLINK : Error 118: Filename Expected
\mfc\lib";D:\Program Files\Microsoft SDK\Lib;D:\Boost\lib
Why do I get this error?

It doesn't seem to be stlport related!
I am using the default sc.ini.
Even if I remove the everything from the sc.ini LIB line execept for
I still get the error. 
Can anyone help with this?
Also do I need to compile the stlport 4.5.3(digital mars version) in order for
it to use IOSTREAM or is it pre compiled to work with digital mars?

I am using the following:
OS = windows xp
the following are non-cd versions of Digital mars software.  In other words I
downloaded it from the Digital mars website:
digital mars compiler = 8.38 
DOS 16 libraries 
32 bit DOS extender libraries Version 8.31
Basic Utilities  
STLport 4.5.3: modified for digital mars
STLSoft 1.6.5: dowloaded from digital mars website
