That is certainly an option of course.

What I thought was that now that we install gcc-2.95.3 anyways, it won't be a 
real big issue to install it completely.

I'm talking a purely personal thing here: I like having the 2.95.3 c++ 
libraries around for those binary only programs that rely on it. I'd hate to 
push my personal preference into the book, so for the record I am not opposed 
to removing C++ again from the 2.95.3 installation instructions, but I'd like 
to see if there aren't more people who use (or could use) 2.95.3's C++ libs.

Ok then will do.
