Maybe you should check your ELDK installation as I see this here:

[dzu at pollux ppc_4xx]$ pwd
[dzu at pollux ppc_4xx]$ find . -name c++config.h 2>/dev/null
[dzu at pollux ppc_4xx]$ 

Best wishes

When you  loosen yourself from  all the obvious delusions  - religion,
ideology,  Communism - you're  still left  with the  myth of  your own
goodness. Which is the final delusion.
