[htdig] Error Message when running "configure"

Tue, 1 Jun 1999 15:03:55 -0400

I'm trying to install HT://Dig on a UNIX System V Release 4.0 Sun OS
5.5.1 System and am getting the following message (I included a bunch of
the stuff it does before I get the message):

configure: error: To compile ht://Dig, you will need a C++ library. Try
installing libstdc++.
After I got this message, I tried to install "libstdc++" but I'm not
having much luck with that.  I was curious though, why does the top of
this configure routine say
"checking whether we are using GNU C++... yes"
if the error message says we're not using C++ ??
Can I just add the library it needs?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!
