Hm, but it were you who said that only f9 and f10 base ports had
libstdc++.so.6 with apropriate symbols. ;-)
About f8 ports. Almost all current linux ports play well with f10
ports at 7.2, 8.0 and 9-CURRENT. Only one exception I'm aware is
acroread9 (a linux syscall should be implemented). If those ports
(f8) are usefull for 7.0 and 7.1 (6.x doesn't have apropriate
kernel sources) then they should stay until 7.0 and 7.1 are EOLed.
