Libg++ has been removed from -current and deemed obsolete.  We will not be
shipping libg++ with 1.4.

The libstdc++ is the only C++ library supported by -current, as it's the
(somewhat) ANSI C++ library.

If you still want libg++, you will need to get it from a GNU mirror and
compile it, or get its includes and libraries from a previous NetBSD
release.  However, code using it should be changed to use ANSI C++, as the
FSF has also discontinued official support for libg++.
