Probably not, but you should be able to install a parallel version of
g++ configured as a cross-compiler for an earlier libc version. I've
never done this myself, so I don't know what specifically is needed,
but I know cross-compiling is possible. Check the configure options
for gcc/g++. You'll probably also need to install the earlier libc,
as well, but obviously not as the default version that will be picked
up with -lc.
