what distribution are you using?

if you are using RedHat, then you can just install the RPMs for egcs-c++

for example, using RedHat 6.2 as an example, from a command line:

su -
--> enter root passwd <--
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
cd /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
rpm --install egcs-c++-1.1.2-30.i386.rpm
exit

at this point, you would have the libraries and header files you need.

good luck,
dennis

i'm not too familiar with Mandrake, but I do know it's based on RedHat... you say it didn't work... where did it fail?
