[htdig] Problem compiling htdig on RedHat Linux 5.2

Hello, all -

htdig is apparently the first thing I've tried to compile on this
system which requires C++. I'm missing something, but I don't know
what. When I run configure I get this error:

checking whether the C++ compiler (c++ ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C++ compiler cannot create executables.

The config log says:

configure:1130: c++ -o conftest conftest.C 1>&5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot open -lstdc++: No such file or directory

Ok, so I'm missing libstdc++ - but I'm not!

[htdig-3.1.2]$ echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

[htdig-3.1.2]$ ls -l /usr/lib/*stdc++*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Apr 14 04:04 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.7.2 -> libstdc++.so.
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 1025339 Oct 15 1997 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Apr 14 04:04 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.8 -> libstdc++.so.2.8.0
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 375773 Oct 14 1998 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.2.8.0

I have all the relevant RPMs (that I know about, anyway) installed:
[htdig-3.1.2]$ rpm -qa | grep gcc
[htdig-3.1.2]$ rpm -qa | grep egcs
[htdig-3.1.2]$ rpm -qa | grep stdc

What the heck am I missing here????

Thanks much in advance,
