   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.
   I think.

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?
