I could be wrong, but I don't believe libstdc++ 2.8.x and 2.9.x are
compatible in this manner. Still, read on.

Well LD_RUN_PATH only works when compiling. What you would want to do
is something like this:

(for sh or bash)

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/gnu/lib"
(if libstdc++ is in /opt/gnu/lib for example)

or (for csh)

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/gnu/lib

If you don't have setenv or env access, you're pretty much done for
unless you can convince the sysadmin to set it for you.
