You cannot say "*Nothing*", and your personal policy is not welcomed.

You asked what broke. I gave you a very precise answer ("everything not
using GCC or its libraries"). I explained why it seemingly works at the
moment. You are basically ignoring it as not relevant. Linking
explicitly against libstdc++ is a bug. It is not a personal policy. It
is no different from hard-coded -ldl and a bunch of other things. The
configure test is broken as it doesn't fail when libstdc++ is not
available. It is redundant as the result isn't needed for correct
operation either. As such it is easiest to just comment it out.

For GCC, no need to link with libstdc++, but it is just redundant, not a bug.
For Clang, not having libstdc++ and not linked with it, but it is OK because
it is not required.

You believe there are no case other than such two case.
I don't know whether it is true or not, because I also don't know whole
development environment, but such kludge probably required for some environment,
it may be called as "a bug" or "a poor capability" of the environment.

I means that "It is redundant and not required, so it must be removed" is
"your personal policy", because you are not a upstream developer.
If you think so, please send it to upstream and start negotiation.
I usually devote much time to negotiate with upstream to change what I want.
I also have some patches not committed to pkgsrc tree even if it fixes critical
issues (dumped core, not worked as expected), because it is not accepted by 
upstream yet.
