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),
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.
