What kind of problems have you experienced?  Do you have any examples
handy?  I just want to test the library I use (built by hands from
sources without any packaging system), maybe it can give us some idea
what's wrong with Debian libg++...  I don't have much C++ code around,
I just keep that library to compile stuff like dselect (BTW, it works,
even when dynamically linked with Debian's lib).  I don't want to
recompile dselect one more time (with Debian libg++), just because
dpkg build has become a nightmare due to recent automake additions.

One more BTW: as far as I remember, the soname of libg++ has been
changed from 27 to 272 to reflect libc5 -> glibc transition in the
Intel world (if I'm not wrong); however, the Debian package still uses
