That post-buildlink target is "Pure Evil" (mmm, Time Bandits).

The error you're seeing is because the "cc" wrapper no longer lives
in ${BUILDLINK_DIR}.  This problem should be fixed properly by linking
with "c++" and not "cc", instead of forcing everything to be linked
against libstdc++.  This is definitely worthy of a PR.
