Definatly strange, because libstdc++ comes with gcc. I installed three machines with that sys without having those problems. But I use a script to make all the neccesary settings to start. I will try to do it manualy as documented and update the docs if neccessary. Thanks for the bug-report.

In rc3 we had the following packages addidtionally to the sys-* stuff. joe (for those who can't vi), rsync,cvs,wget,openssh,openssl,strace,w3m,unzip,net-telnet,ftp,lftp. All these are not required to compile the stuff in sys, so that's why it is not there. sys only contains the stuff required for a minimum runtime-system that is able to recompile itself and to build everything else.
