Ralf's X backport compiled with the wrong g++

Hi Ralf,

the g++ libraries from your backport of the experimental packages of
XFree86 4.3.0 you announed at [1] are compiled with g++ 2.95 although
they must be compiled with g++ 3.2.

The smallest problem are wrong package descriptions, e.g. in:

<--  snip  -->

Package: xlibmesa4-glu
Source: xfree86
Version: 4.3.0-0woody4
Priority: optional
Section: libs
Maintainer: Daniel Stone <dstone@trinity.unimelb.edu.au>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4), libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 (>= 1:2.95.4-0.010810)
 This package was built using version 1.02 of the C++ ABI.

<--  snip  -->

Much worse is that this will cause breakages if people use these broken
packages together with packages from sarge/unstable or if they use other
packages you backported together with correct future XFree86 4.3.0
packages from sarge/unstable.

Please fix your backport packages.
