   What programs are these?  How would they be built using a stock GCC 
   (i.e. not one built from the NetBSD tree, but one built with 
   (NetBSD's GCC should behave the same way!)

the one that comes to mind is groff.  why would we want to have
it linked against libstdc++ when it's not required?
