Linux Portability

I have a few questions/comments based on my first experience running murgalua on linux.

The first thing I encountered was an error because libstdc++.so.5 was not present. I didn't have root authority or even a gcc compiler. Fortunately, this was a debian system and I found a library on another machine that I could use. Would libstdc++ be compatible from one x86 linux to another? One thing I love about murgalua is that all the basics for windows/linux and even mac are included in one installation package! Could libstdc++ be included in the installation package? Keep in mind that this library is required to run murgalua and not optional like libsqlite.

Fortunately, I know about the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variables. That kind of information is never included in linux installation instructions and believe me, that kind of detail in install instructions can be a real blessing if you are not a linux system administrator and don't even use linux very often.
