huh.  On NetBSD it didn't do that.  My only /usr/lib/libstdc++ is
version 4, from the system gcc AFAIK.

My own gcc3 is, well, my own.  I don't think the pkgsrc version works,
it was just my own install and I got confused (didn't install correctly
or whatever).

Yes, I think so.  And even for NetBSD some magic is needed.
