well, we don't have egcs either. Nevertheless i've installed
egcs in local dir and it works without problmes.

AFAIK, i have to have 200+ meg to compile glibc.
egcs compilation takes < 100 (and that amount i can afford)

sorry, i mislead you. Old libstdc++ means not from recent
egcs, but from a bit old snapshot (something around
libg++ 2.8.0b6), not 2.7.2 version. 
Still i have libstdc++2.7.2.so and libstdc++2.8.0.so installed. They
coexist quite nicely
