The string "cpp-runtime-hack" does not appear anywhere in the current
sources in TeX Live, BTW. Oh, looking at web2c/configure.in, it seems
to be --with-cxx-runtime-hack. (I hate C++.)
Anyway, my recent build did statically link libstdc++ (and the other
libraries) into the pdfetex binary.
But it seems that the configure from the lcdf_typetools package
doesn't understand that switch. :-(
Hardly surprising. We will have to insert similar kludges for that;
I'll see if I can do that unless someone else can work on it. (I hate
C++. Dynamic libraries too. Life used to be simpler.)
Staszek's build will probably go against libstdc++ v5, which is better
but not good enough, since Taco reported that Mandriva may ship without
v5, with *only* v6. It's nice to see such concern for compatibility :(.
(BTW, last year's lcdf binaries also dynamically linked against
libstdc++, and I don't remember getting any bug reports about it.)
because something in texinfo fails (don't kow how
to make version.texi) Is this known/my fault, or should I attempt
to isolate the error precisely?
Texinfo builds fine for me. version.texi exists in my original
distribution as an up-to-date file; it should not need to get rebuilt.
Maybe your timestamps are munged.
