Yes, because libstdc++2.9-dev_2.91.59-2 depends on g++-2.91.x and
this compiler searches in the correct directory. That dependency was
missing in 2.91.59-1.

I disagree, because the libstdc++ library is dependent on the g++
compiler and ld doesn't know anything about this dependency. Perhaps
an C++ expert could comment ...
