No, not a good idea.  gcc-3.1.1-2 fixed this behavior, I think.  Plus, 
there's a gcc-3.1.1-3 coming out soon, so just chill, for now.  A g++ 
compiler that doesn't automatically include the directory where its own 
stdc++ library header files are stored is a broken g++ compiler and 
needs to be fixed in g++ itself -- not band-aiding every C++ program on
