One option is to build it yourself (this way you can also disable the
mail/news component). This requires about 100-200M disk-space and
the development-tools (binutils, compiler, make [..]) and it's a 20M
download (you can use patches to upgrade ;-). It should be just
decompress, ./configure --disable*/--enable* && make

I think on www.mozilla.org it is mentioned that the linux-binaries
are built on Redhat 6.1. Thus I conclude that they will be linked against
the latest (stable) libstdc++: 2.90 (maybe you can find out by searching
the rpm-database on rpmfind.net ?). This will be the case if the compiler
is gcc 2.95.2 (and I don't see any reason why this shouldn't be the
default compiler).
