If you are using Slackware 9.1, you might have run into the same problem I
have. Here is a brute force workaround:
Remove all your packages that have libtool libraries that depend on libstdc++.
cp libstdc++.la libstdc++.la.orig
sed <libstdc++.la.orig >libstdc++.la -e 's,^\(libdir.*\)/.,\1,'
Rebuild the packages that you removed.
