zip archive contains a diffs for each modified file separatelly (So it was
for me easier to maintain). As far as I remember all should be Ok also 
with gcc-3.0.3.

You need diffs for 2 files in libstdc++-v3/include/bits only:
	std_fstream.h (You'll need to additionally modify it, perhaps
                 by completely removing parts I excluded with
		 '#ifndef __DJGPP__')

However I'm not sure it will be enough to simply modify these 2 files.
Perhaps You will need to rebuild libstdc++-v3
