I think this will have to be the plan of action. It doesn't
build in g++ 2.8 with libstdc++2.8/libg++2.8, it almost builds on
g++272 with libg++272-dev but not quite, presumably because
the autoconf stuff tests some things using `g++' (2.8) but
then the code gets compiled with g++272, and I'm not too sure
how to work around this.

Unfortunately we don't really seem to support concurrent
2.7.2 and 2.8 development, since the -dev packages conflict.

How do you mean `repack'?

Since it's a valid virtual package name I'm not even convinced
it's a bug in any package at all. May I change it to wishlist?
