Right, because libstdc++ includes the contents of libsupc++, AFAIK (or
maybe it has a DT_NEEDED for it...). It's normally not used in a
normal GCC c++ link.
that's right. (the bits are included directly; libsupc++ is
only built as a normal archive, not shlib.)
the problem is for programs that _don't_ use (want) libstdc++.
with GCC3, those programs _do_ need libsupc++... perhaps there
should be a -nostdc++ option or something that does this?
