I suspect your programmer may not fully understand what he or she is

I created a sid chroot, then did the following:

apt install -y build-essential less vim libgtk2.0-dev mercurial
hg clone http://hg.code.sf.net/p/scintilla/code scintilla
hg clone http://hg.code.sf.net/p/scintilla/scite scintilla-scite
cd scintilla/gtk/
cd ../../scintilla-scite/gtk/

After that, I copied scintilla-scite/bin/SciTE into the root directory
(/) in a wheezy and a jessie chroot.  Here is what I got from the wheezy

sudo chroot ./wheezy-chroot/ ./SciTE
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.8' not found (required by ./SciTE)
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.19' not found (required by ./SciTE)
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by ./SciTE)
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by ./SciTE)
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.20' not found (required by ./SciTE)

>From jessie:

sudo chroot ./jessie-chroot/ ./SciTE
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by ./SciTE)
./SciTE: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by ./SciTE)

So, those would be the libstdc++ problem.  I then made this change in

diff -r 6e7614763bad gtk/makefile

 include deps.mak

As you can see, I swapped '-lstdc++' for '-static-libstdc++'.

Then I removed scintilla-scite/bin/SciTE and ran make again in
scintilla-scite/gtk and copied the new scintilla-scite/bin/SciTE into
the same wheezy and jessie chroots.

Now, in wheezy I get this:

sudo chroot ./wheezy-chroot/ ./SciTE
./SciTE: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by ./SciTE)
./SciTE: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by ./SciTE)

That makes sense since the glibc in wheezy is version 2.13.  However,
when I ran it in jessie, the editor window appeared.

All of this took roughly 45 minutes for me to diagnose, with most of
that time spent waiting on packages to download over my slow connection
to set up the chroots.

Let me know if you have any questions.
