nope, it wasn't correct - at least on my system.
with the help of Steve Robbins, i discovered that i had an old version
of /usr/bin/c++ (2.95.2) hanging around.
this wasn't a symlink to /etc/alternatives, it was a real file.
# ls -l /usr/bin/c++
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 69456 Oct 25 1999 /usr/bin/c++
so, turns out it was a false alarm...or at least, it was only a problem on
i've checked a few of my other debian systems and they have the correct
symlinks...but now i'll have to check them all (or at least, all of
the older ones built prior to Oct 1999) in case this was caused by a
long-ago buggy upgrade.
