No, no. This wrong. Do you really believe that the LFS book is this buggy?
If the LFS book says that you don't need c++ in chapter 5 then you
_don't_need_ c++ in chapter 5! If compiling a static compiler with c++
solves your problem, this means that you haven't installed GCC (correctly)
in chapter 6. You should have installed GCC right after glibc (with c++).


He who SHOUTS is always wrong.
