RE: Linux Portability

libstdc++.so.5 is present in a lot of distros that lean toward legacy support, and in distros that try to make a compromise by including both libstdc++.so.5 and libstdc++.so.6. Some distros that push toward supporting the most recent developments while dropping support for anything "old" will have only libstdc++.so.6. But you can have both installed at the same time.

Would libstdc++ be compatible from one x86 linux to another?

If it was compiled with a compatible c lib it might work. I've used several binaries that I've copied directly from one distibution to another.
