Because every c++ library in the distribution needs to be built with all
permutations of ABI breaking options. The libstdc++ library is just the
first one. If you don't want to face doing this, then having
-fhuge-objects always on is a reasonable workaround.

As -fhuge-objects doesn't exist anymore - it's been removed from g++ -
getting an upstream fix for older g++'s is probably unlikely.

Where can I get the ports recipe for g++ (I use freebsd when checking
reported squid bugs, not as my primary platform). I'll happily give the
port a quick check to see if I can offer a local workaround.
