grep-available reports that there are three libstdc++ packages in potato
at the moment:

1) libstdc++2.10, priority required, section base
2) libstdc++2.9-glibc2.1, priority optional, section oldlibs
3) libstdc++2.8, priority optional, section oldlibs

Try installing libstdc++2.8 and see if that fixes your problem.
