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.
