Perhaps I should have taken more care with my phrasing. I am sure the
programmer here is doing a fine job. In my experience, the weakest area
for nearly every programmer I meet is build systems. Interestingly
enough, I lectured in class today and build systems and their
importance. This is a case where understanding some of the "extras"
that many other programmers either overlook or do not have to deal with
is key to solving the problem.
As far as what you do next, it should be sufficient to have him swap
'-lstdc++' for '-static-libstdc++' and then rebuild. That should get
you a working binary.
