Hmm, I think you must run "env-update" first. This is new in rc4 and I
don't think it made it to the doc's
right now.
env-update generates a files called /etc/profile.d from all the files in
/etc/env.d and it autogenerates /etc/ld.so.conf.
man did not work because libstdc++ is in /usr/lib/gcc-lib/........./lib
and that path is added to /etc/ld.so.conf by
env-update.
Hope I'm right. :-)

Yes, this is a cool feature of the 2,4er kernel. Was amazed here too.
