Right, unless of course you're making a release for a RedHat 8.0 box ;)
I know indeed that a binary compiled on this box will not run well on
others because of the ABI differences.

Oh, I realize it isn't the core of the problem. But it was one big step
that was necessary for anyone that wants to develop GtkRadiant on a gcc
3.x box. Without the changes I made it wouldn't even compile, nevermind
the huge spewage of warnings.
I do believe your comment about finding a way to static link libstdc++
is probably a Good Thing(TM). Here's the ldd output for radiant.x86 on

Maybe creating a fully static linked library would be better even?
