Oh, pspell gives a C interface.  (That makes this bug more severe.)  In
that case, adding the stdc++ link explicitely is probably all that can
be done until it's fixed in the library.

There may be many binaries being linked with varying libraries, etc.  If
this test is wanted, it should be done explicitely (link a test program
against all of the libraries in use), not as a side-effect.  I don't
think it matters, though.
