When I built FF on my new 'unstable' test box I was careful to
do all the 'right stuff' like revdep-rebuild and use gcc-config
to set the profile to vanilla-gcc, rebuild libtool, and run
fix_libtool_files.sh.

I'm not willing to do all that invasive stuff on my 'stable' box
until I'm confident that it won't be a catastrophe.  The test box,
OTOH, who cares!  As it happens, the 'unstable' box is working at
least as well as the 'stable' box.  But that could change tomorrow.

If you want to use your new compiler, you really *must* recompile
every package which is linked against libstdc++.  That's why I
ran revdev-rebuild against the new libstdc++.  It's really quite
a PIA and once you do it, it's an equal PIA to go back to the
previous compiler.
