There is a libstdc++ package in fgs-dev/pkg_dev/libstdc++ that grabs the 
libstdc++ from the system where FGS is built and packages is as an 
optional package to install. Installing it may require manual steps for 
the user... not exactly sure. Guillaume would know if he still reads 
this list.

I see a fgs-libstdc++-lib-5.0.7-linux-i386.tar.gz at 
http://dl.maptools.org/dl/fgs/modules/0.2/ which must correspond to the 
system where FGS-0.2 was built.
