I just tried the latest snapshot of gcc-4.1 with the same results.
Actually, I wonder if the problem is with the make install rule that I'm

If I compile gcc, and then do a
make DESTDIR=/e/black/files/gcc-4.1 install,
and then on the same machine do the
gcc-4.1 -o main.c command it works. However, the g++-4.1 -o main
main.cpp fails with the 'can not find iostream' error.

This seems odd, since I haven't relocated gcc yet. Any ideas?
