I know that, but Galen's .deb does not contain the libstdc++ from egcs,
and we don't have an egcs libg++ shared lib in the packaging system, ie
it's totally usless currently.

I don't think I have enough disk space to actually compile egcs and it's
libstdc++ as well as the new libc6 from source.

No, egcs won't even compile function.h from 2.7.2, it's been hacked badly
to work in gcc 2.7.2.

I doubt I have space either..

Sorry, I ment to have the egcs libstc++ and gcc libstc++ co-exist, both
sets of headers and both sets of shared libs. The shared libs I can see,
but how about the headers?

I really want to try egcs, it seems to have many many many C++ bug fixes,
gcc 2.7.2 is pretty bad..
