Thanks. I see that I had removed CXX.
-_BLNK_WRAPPEES=                AS CC CXX CPP LD
+_BLNK_WRAPPEES=                AS CC CPP LD

... because I couldn't do anything unless I had g++ installed. I don't
recall error, but it couldn't make link.

This makes me wonder what is the purpose of having separate gcc3-c and
gcc3-c++ packages?

Usually, I have g++ available (from gcc3-c++ package).

Maybe there should be some way to detect if CXX is needed and only have it
defined for _BLNK_WRAPPEES as appropriate.

I added the CXX back to _BLNK_WRAPPEES for now.

(This may have fixed my other problem with -lstdc++ missing with
x11/qt3-libs too. It is slowly building...)
