no, you _must_ install glibc on your 486. i suggest to install it completely.

software of the basic system does not need libstdc++. some other software
may need libstdc++ however. libstdc++ comes with gcc. the 
libstdc++-2.91.tar.gz you found is probably libstdc++ without gcc. ;)

even if you'll perhaps never need libstdc++ on your 486, i recommend to
compile gcc with a simple make (no bootstrappn needed) and then just 
copy the libstdc++-blaa library to your 486 and delete the rest of gcc.

but hey, it's your system - do it the way you want.

if you decide to compile gcc (or any other package) for the 486 on your 
686 _and link it statically_, make sure the static libraries you link 
against are not optimized for i686 (i.e. not compiled with -march=i686). 

hope i didn't confused you,
