You are right Colin. The most ironic thing is that I _did_ have
libstdc++2.9-glibc2.1 installed so my symlink wasn't needed at all. I have
removed it now. The only one remaining there is libreadline.so.3, which
points to /usr/lib/libreadline.so.4, since I couldn't find it anywhere on

Of course, I can't remember why did I need it :-(

I guess I can remove the link and see what breaks :-)

Bye, Dragan
