Try compiling some different C++ code on your system. I'm almost certain
that this is a problem with the setup of GNU C++ on your particular machine,
and not an ht://Dig problem. If so, then this is not the best place to get
help, and you'd probably have better luck on a GNU C++ related mailing list
or newsgroup.
