EGCS upgrade?

OK, an update. I managed to find the patched EGCS upgrade RPM's from 
gary's section of the ftp site. I installed them (and most 
of the other stuff in there) and it all works fine.

Problem is, I still can't find any libstdc++ anywhere on my hard drive. 
Lots of symlinks to it, to be sure (actually they're all looking for but no library itself. Any clues on where to find it? 
Might I be able to compile it out of the egcs-1.1.1 sources without any 
trouble (my guess is no)? Not being able to use Netscape is beginning to 
get annoying...

On an unrelated topic, I've noticed that about half the time I try to 
shut down, I get a message saying "/ is busy" when the system tries to 
umnount it. This, of course, makes fsck VERY unhappy when I try to 
reboot, and I have to sit and listen to it whine (it only ever finds one 
error; a single deleted inode with zero dtime, and it's always the same 
one, which is fine when rebooting if the unmount succeeded before). Any 
idea on what might be causing that one? Thanks!
