Although gcc3-c++ is not in the dependency list, the configure script
for prc-tools checks for g++ anyway and fails, even though it is
installed.  It's a strange case of the linker being pointed exactly
where it needs to look and failing to find libstdc++.* anyway.

The config.log file is as follows:

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.
