I think it's basically wrong to link with libsupc++ on any
non-embedded system.  In the same way that we don't provide a separate
malloc-and-free-but-not-popen C library, we shouldn't provide a
separate new-and-delete-but-not-iostream C++ library.

I don't even think we should install libsupc++ on a workstation.
