That's not what I meant.
Let me rephrase, 4.5.2 isn't built *using* the C++ compiler.

For trunk, yes, see the top entry of http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.8/changes.html
That isn't the case for 4.5.2, so as I said, 4.5.2 isn't built with
the C++ compiler so doesn't link to libstdc++.so so doesn't care if
you have incompatible versions in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
