Well, the implementation is done in such a way that the hack is only
enabled if a test program can be linked and run successfully. The hack
does not work (i.e. the c++ runtime lib will not be linked statically)
in this case, but it also does no harm.

I am sure that pdftex will run (even though the linker has issued a
few warnings).
