For some reason, configure invokes $CC with -lstdc++ (among other libraries), which causes a problem with Sun's C-compiler -- the library should only be used with a C++ compiler... I guess, GNU C just finds it anyway, but that should not be relied upon...

Why does it bother with libstdc++ at all?

The patch I just added solves the problem here, but I doubt, it is suitable for general case. I uploaded it more for illustration than anything...
