The bugs shouldn't be too hard to fix, but they aren't uncommon. I got
rid of libstdc++2.9 today by locally recompiling anything that depended 
on it, and filed a bug of this type on one of the packages (djtools).
There, at least, the fix was simple.

sociopaths who are good at killing and who enjoy dark powers. Maybe 
it's just my friends?
