Do not expect C++ together with glibc to work at the moment;
they don't.  Sorry.  They are being worked on.

You shouldn't need to install glibc separately.  Unfortunately
the glibc installed with the cris-dist-1.11 RPM does not work

FWIW, that version does not work *at all* with cris-dist-1.11 as
you noticed.

Not 2.2.2, but it seems 2.2.3 includes a work-in-progress CRIS
port recently contributed.  It's a bit unfortunate that it made
it into a release, because it doesn't work.  I *did* mention to
the glibc people that it was work in progress, and that it at
the time just worked for "Hello, world".  Oh, and cris-dist-1.11
won't work with it, so playing with glibc CVS will unfortunately
not help you.

The code I'm working on seems to fit.  Don't waste your time
with that 13 MB though.  Sorry, you just hit the bleeding edge.

It depends on what you're trying to do.  People have had some
(limited?) success using C++, but IIRC not together with glibc.
Trying to install various old versions of glibc is wasted time.
