I think libstdc++ is quite standards compliant, perhaps it's not 100%
but it's close enough for the vast majority of applications. They even
have an implementation of the TR1 extensions which is more than Visual
Studio (which is quite standards compliant) does.
Nice to hear that!

Those are more of pkgsrc issues but don't let that stop you, even the
best system would be worthless without applications to run on it.
The same goes for Ronald, there are still a number of applications in
pkgsrc that does not build under DF, some of them ought to be written in
C++ so perhaps if you make some of them work it would provide the most
benefit for the DF project.
. .. just help them to use exciting DragonFly BSD features like
powerful threading, SMP and [kernel] message queueing. Dunno is it
possible to make them benefit from VFS journaling.
The best support for the OS is to make popular SW more robust on this
particular OS. :)
Ah! Another idea to work on: journal administration facade. Although,
could be arguable for use of C++ here.
