i.e., it works perfectly fine for me on my Opteron system with a recent
SUSE-Linux-distribution. In /usr/lib/ and /usr/lib64 libstdc++.so
symlinks to
libstdc++.so.6.0.8, and  libstdc++.so.5 symlinks to libstdc++.so.5.0.7

It is rather easy to mess up a mixed 32bit/64bit system. I've once done
this and
had to reinstall from scratch, then things do work.
