thats why I'd add a conflict to current libstdc++ so libstdc++ gets
upgraded first and then the binaries which would be broken because of
libstdc++ but not bythemselves would work. But... for example mozilla
itself needs __register_frame_info too :(
Hmm... not good enough, perhaps we need that lib anyway... or wait for
what Dwarf and the libc people come up with Zacks patch...
