Seems so.

Well, these things date back to before my time - I'm not quite sure
why we have 2 config settings for C++, and if C++ support without
libstdc++ makes any sense, but the best approach indeed seems to be to
add a LIBSTDCPP option as well (You can make it a hidden option that
get's selected by the CROSS_CXX if you want to).
