The library itself seems to function correctly...it's really the -dev
package that seems to need some help. I can't think of what I had
problems with offhand, but I remember installing it several times and then
immediately purging it. Using the regular libg++ package on my site
should work fine, though. Sorry, I should've been more specific when I

Dselect works fine as is, as far as I know (I never use it, but have
mildly tested it on my system and it seems to work), so it shouldn't need
a recompile at this point. If you manage to get the -dev stuff working
somehow, let me know how you did it since I've got a waiting list of
packages that need g++ to work properly.
I'm also attempting to compile libg++ myself using glibc 2.0.4. It's slow
going, but I should make significant headway when I return. Mike, if you
have any patches that you did for libg++, let me know and we'll look at
them when I return. Maybe between the two of us we can get this thing
working the way it should :)

package name changes as well...
Thanks for letting me know that since I didn't realise it :) And feel
free to poke and prod at libg++ and the respective -dev package to see
what you can figure out :)
