Until LSB 3.x there was not a requirement to support other LSB
versions as well; we certainly tried to make it easy for
a distro to support, say, LSB 2.0 and 3.x simultaneously,
and separate libstdc++ was part of that, but it wasn't
mandatory at the time, so nothing in 3.x or 4.0 requires
libstdc++.so.5, no.
