nothing should be requiring libg++.. the c++ compiler should know to use
libstdc++.  does configure really check for libg++? or just a working c++
compiler (which is what it should be doing)?  libg++ is only kept around
for compatibility (which IMO we don't really need since we're making a
jump from an incompatible libc).
