*quite*. f.ex:

# apt-cache search g++|grep stl
castle-combat - game where the player builds one castle and destroys 
castle-combat-data - data files for castle-combat
fastlink - [Biology] A faster version of pedigree programs of Linkage
fastlink-doc - [Biology] Some papers about fastlink
festlex-cmu - CMU dictionary for Festival
festlex-poslex - Part of speech lexicons and ngram from English
gmt-coast-low - Low resolution coastlines for the Generic Mapping Tools
ht - Viewer/editor/analyser (mostly) for executables
libstlport4.6 - STLport C++ class library
libstlport4.6-dev - STLport C++ class library
op-sh-hostlist - Hostlist tool for Opie
stl-manual - C++-STL documentation in HTML
vim-scripts - plugins for vim, adding bells and whistles
festlex-oald - Festival lexicon from Oxford Advanced Learners' Dictionary

But .. I just apt-get install libstlport4.6-dev, libstlport4.6 before and 
it does not provide stl.h . Yes I ran updatedb. apt-file cannot find any 
packages that provide stl.h . Who or what provides stl.h ?!

I found a package list on the web for a rpm of the same kind of package 
and stl.h was not in it. Huh ? stl.h *must* exist.

Could someone locate stl.h on their systems and tell what deb it comes 
from ? If not, is there a shortcut ?
