I'm using Fedora, and the packaging between Linux distros can be quite
different. See for example, perl packaging in Debian (all in one) and the perl
packaging in Fedora (several dozen of packages).

For the libstdc++, the libstdc++-devel package doesn't provide the static
library. I have to install libstdc++-static package for that.
