Doubtful. This is what it says in the README:
ht://Dig has been tested extensively under Linux 2.0 using g++
If you use g++, make absolutely sure you have libstdc++ installed
as well. (libstdc++ has superceded the older libg++ package.)
Moreover, it works on 1.4.1, without libg++, and it's reported to
build on 1.3.X.
I only noticed this after kim reported a failure on 1.3H.
I'm not positive exactly when libstdc++ appeared. (ISTR 1.3K) I
suppose it would be neater to have a REQ_FILE script actually look for
it, but I didn't think it would be worth the trouble: this only
affects the oldest systems that pkgsrc runs on, and -current systems
at that. More importantly, just because libstdc++ is found, doesn't
mean it's all there.
