It is now :) Let me add it to Jira:

It looks like Apple decided to get rid of libsupc++ in their gcc 4.
I just hope they didn't integrate it into libstdc++ -- that would
prevent programs from linking with third party implementations of
the C++ Standard Library (such as STDCXX) due ODR violations (i.e.,
due to both libraries containing their own definitions of the same

FWIW, we have only very recently (last week, in fact) tried to build
on OS X. Andrew has filed a bunch of issues for the problems that he
has uncovered so far -- see

Since several of them are involved and would require us to recertify
the library on all the platforms where it has passed my goal is to get
them fixed in 4.1.4. Does that sound reasonable?
