[FGS] libstdc++.so.5 Problem

I saw something very similar to this earlier today.  However, I wasn't trying 
to run PHP.  Instead, I was trying to compile another GIS app and use the 
libraries from FGS.  I wasn't building an FGS package, but wanted to use the 
libraries as my default system libraries.  

This makes me wonder if you are really using the FGS version of PHP, or 
another version that's part of Fedora proper.
