libstdc++ now is included into egcs tarball.
Old GNU C++ library is removed and not supported.

egcs is all what you have to install.

well, STL in 2.7.2 probably can work with egcs -
all stuff is in headers after all. But I/O is definitely
binary incompatible.

well, AFAIK libio stuff in glibc 2.0.5c and
in egcs was made binary compatible. Probably
if you're not egcs user there is too small gain
to compile 2.0.5c. I cannot compile it myself due to
lack of disk space ;(

btw, also you have to patch one glibc 2.0.5c header.
I can forward patch to you

they coexist on my system quite well
(i'm having old libstdc++ but recent egcs c++/gcc etc).
