First of all, CLooG-PPL is optional, so you can dance around this
problem by setting GCC_USE_PPL_CLOOG to no in gcc4/Makefile.

Secondly, CLooG's Makefile is in fact wrong by using gcc to link libraries
which do require C++ libraries (the confusion is that CLooG itself is C
only).  The real trouble is that the PPL version of CLooG is a bit hacked
by its developers and not really going to be maintained in future (in
gcc 4.7 this will be switched to CLooG-ISL instead).

Perhaps the following is better workaround: locate CROSS_GCC_CONFIG_ARGS in
gcc4/Makefile which specifies --with-host-libstdcxx, change its value into:


Does that solve your problem ?

If we really want to know why libstdc++ does not get found on your
system, try:

  $ cd builddir/cross-cloog
  $ gcc -v -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer -g -O2 -o cloog cloog.o -Wl,-lstdc++  -L/home/alanb/gccsdk/gcc4/builddir/installed-libs-for-cross-gcc/lib ./.libs/ libcloog.a /home/alanb/gccsdk/gcc4/builddir/installed-libs-for-cross-gcc/lib/lib ppl_c.a /home/alanb/gccsdk/gcc4/builddir/installed-libs-for-cross-gcc/lib/libppl .a /home/alanb/gccsdk/gcc4/builddir/installed-libs-for-cross-gcc/lib/libgmpxx.a /home/alanb/gccsdk/gcc4/builddir/installed-libs-for-cross-gcc/lib/libgmp.a

I.e. add the -v option to gcc and look at the -L options specified with
the collect2 line (last line).  In my case I have one which says
-L/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.4.3/../../.. and in /usr/lib I do have
libstdc++.so.6 file.
