Johan Petersson, who has provided valuable C++ knowledge in the
past, has a
entry to my
libstdc++ post. Johan recommends
moving creating a symbolic link to
the static libstdc++.a library
in another directory, and explicitly adding that directory to the linker's
path with -L. How he figured that out, I'll never know.
The point about dynamically loading other shared libraries that depend
on other version of libstdc++ is taken. With that said, it isn't a
problem for me, because I intend to build and statically link all my
dependencies, so all the libraries will will all be using the same libstdc++.
I stick behind my decision to statically link the executable.
the only thirdparty c++ library that I am using is libxml2, and that
is only for parsing the configuration file. (libxml2 is
a C library)
