So how would you do this? is a binary distributed
by Macromedia, you can't recompile it.  And your "first try" for this
binary may not be an appropriate "first try" for most other binaries
on the system.  

The point, in this case, is to allow you to use a Linux plugin with a
native (not Linux binary) browser.  So you can't even use an
environment variable like ${CCVER} -- the mozilla{-firefox} binary
wants a different libstdc++ from the linux plugin.
