[tex-live] New binaries (and problems:)

    Recompilation with setting LDFLAGS will make it work here, I think; 
    this will not necessarily make it work on other machines though.


    Shall I recompile with --disable-shared ? 
    What is the reason for configuring these programs to be built 
    with libstdc++ at all?

Presumably there is C++ code somewhere now.  We need to track it down
and remove it (if possible), or compile statically, or include the
shared libs on the CD (and install them ... ugh ...).

Compiling statically sounds better than including the shared libs to me
-- if it works.  We'd only want to compile libstdc++ and libgcc_s
statically, so the linking will get complex.

Perhaps ask Thanh if he knows where the C++ is and if it can be removed?
(I don't believe he's on this list.)

Glad you noticed.
