libstdc++ is a library needed to compile C++ programs with gcc. Assuming
you actually have the C++ bits of gcc (if you can run g++ that would be
a good sign), then you could install libstdc++ in your home directory.
You can download the tarball of libstdc++ from any GNU mirror, eg.
you could then read the installation instructions, and configure it
something like
./configure --prefix=$HOME
then make && make install.

Then when you compiled htdig you'd need to somehow tell it where to find
the libstdc++ library. On Solaris or Linux, you could do this by setting
two environment variables:


before starting the compile. Other versions of Unix have other ways of
accomplishing the same goal. I believe there is some guidance about this
in the HtDig FAQ.
