You might want to talk to your vendor about that.  Sun *should* be providing its own libstdc++ library that you could use to compile the GNU version.

You need to compile gcc to look at where libstdc++ is installed or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH if your running gcc 2.8 or earlier.

Easier still is to download gcc 2.95 or higher which includes C++ (and libraries) and other languages by default.
