FreeBSD-current now has gcc and libg++ 2.7.2 if that might
be of interest ... If I remember right, some people said on the
mailinglists, that some C++ projects are only to handle with gcc-2.7.x.

So maybe migrating to -current with an experimental machine might
solve your problem ?! I'd simly try it ... -current is stable enough.
I run it for months without backups ... (not because I'm too lazy,
only because I don't have a tape anymore ;)
