Keeping the old libstdc++ and possibly other libraries around, ldd'ing
looking for dynamic links to it, collating by spell, and then recasting
could be done in g++/FINAL instead of using a trigger. Prompt in
configure with a default to no unless the new and old version have their
minor version "cut -d. -f2" not identical, delete the old libstdc++ now,
and call the problem fixed.
Or did I miss something?
