The libg++2.8.2 package contains an old gnu C++ library that is no longer
actively maintained.

The 27 and 272 packages provide support for older versions of g++.  You
don't want to use these for compiling programs unless the program
depends on the bugs in the 2.7.2 compiler.  For slink, you need to get
the following packages:

libstdc++2.9 (you probably have that already)

and the gcc packages.
