Intuition? The error message showed that the linker failed to find
very many symbols. What else could it be?

I found an old 1.3H volume, and it has only libstdc++.so.1.0, Oct 23,
1998. Also a 1.3I, libstdc++.so.2.0, Feb 4, 1999, same as you. So
probably 1.3I is OK. That's also consistent with the idea the 1.3H
doesn't have the right lib. It's downright puzzling that the package
is reported to build on 1.3.2 (but does it work?)
Now that I'm looking at it again, that wildcard is screwy, since it
permits 1.3, 1.3.1, 1.3.2, and 1.3.3. OTH, maybe it really is
libstc++.so.1.0 that's broken, and 0.1 is OK for this. I'd prefer to
collect reports of success/failure before trying to fix that.
If anyone with 1.3[A-J] wants to try this and report, it's trivial to
"fake out" the package system with "make OS_VERSION=1.4" or similar.
