sorry about the very late summary on this. i did
eventually resolve my problem. however, i was only
able to work on the problem in bits and pieces over
a couple of weeks.

my original question concerned building the g++ compiler
from gcc, using version 2.8.1. i am not sure if my
original mistake was in the building of the gcc compiler
or in adding the additional libraries. since the answers
i received essentially duplicated the instructions i
had, i just started over from scratch. i down loaded
the latest version of gcc, and the additional libraries,
libg++ and libstdc++, from:
then i just followed the directions. this time everything
worked fine.

my original question is attached below. i would like to
thank the following individuals for their assistance:

Tony Lawson <>
