I think the OP would have preferred that a current version of lcdf-typetools
be linked (dynamically) against a current libstdc++, so was not
looking for "cxx-runtime-hack".  Maybe the best strategy for the OP is
to file a bug with
the distro (Fedora 9) against lcdf-typetools so that when TeX Live is
packaged it uses the version he needs.
