That C++ code is there for a long time. It comes from xpdf which is used
by pdftex for reading pdf files (for graphic inclusion).
The point is that gcc can be build in such a way that the C++ runtime
library is a shared library. Binaries compiled with such a version of
gcc are no longer portable.
--disable-shared might be a solution, however, not for compiling TL,
but for compiling gcc. Another solution, as already suggested, is to
use the Sun compilers.
