so, i think we're screwed.
GCC 3.0 defaults to building a shared libstdc++ on many platforms, and the
version number of this shlib is 3. we unfortunately have called our
egcs 1.1.2-based libstdc++ .so.3, so this conflicts... it's quite annoying,
as programs linked against $gcc-prefix/lib/libstdc++.so runtime link with
/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.3, unless explicit ld -rpath/LD_LIBRARY_PATH are used.
this doesn't even consider that we probably need a major bump for libstdc++.so
for the GCC 2.95 upgrade we're in the middle of.
