Could you point me to proper installation instructions for using
libstdc++-2.90.8 with gcc-2.95.3?  The instructions at

don't quite seem to be correct.  For instance, the instructions for
setting up the source directories state:


Unpack the gccsrcdir and go into that directory. For instance,
gcc-2.95.2 is a valid gccsrcdir. Once in gccsrcdir, you'll need to rename
or delete the libstdc++-v3 directory which comes with that

      mv libstdc++-v3 libstdc++-v3-previous  [OR]
      rm -r libstdc++-v3

Next, unpack the libstdc++-v3 library tarball into the gccsrcdir
directory; it will create a libsrcdir called libstdc++-version: 

      gzip -dc libstdc++-version.tar.gz | tar xf -

Finally, make a soft link between libsrcdir and libstdc++-v3 so that
libstdc++-v3 will be the default C++ library used. 

      ln -s libsrcdir libstdc++-v3


The problem is that for gcc 2.95.2 and 2.95.3 there is no directory
'gccsrcdir/libstdc++-v3'.  There is only a single directory named
'gccsrcdir/libstdc++'?  How can I modify these installation instructions
to get this to work?
