Yes, that's why I wanted to use libstdc++-v3 instead of libg++ that is
included with gcc 2.95.2.

Sure, I'll see what I can do.

Hmm, do you mean libstdc++-v3 is included with gcc 2.96 (cvs)?

I have been looking at the libstdc++ cvs from so far, it seems
to be the same as the april 20 snapshot - should I be looking somewhere
else for really bleeding edge, current cvs?

Sure, I'll also see about getting cvs gcc though.
