This sounds like a problem in apt to me, and I've seen issues like
that before.

What does apt say for
  apt-get install -t testing libstdc++6 build-essential

If it gives an error, manually add the packages it cannot install on the 
commandline, until you either found the actual dependency problem or apt
found a way forward.

When apt found a way forward, and if it still wants to remove packages 
you want to keep, also add them on the commandline.
