yes, g++ now has the silly notion that it needs to link libstdc++ to everything it compiles, even if 
it does not need it like Qt and Qtopia.
There is a configure argument to turn off this silliness (when configuring g++), but I forget what 
it is. Some toolchains g++ automatically link in libstdc++ for 'you' and some do not. Any toolchain 
from OE will exhibit this behavior (since it is g++ default mode).
