There's C++ code? I looked through the source tree and was glad not
to see any. Plan 9 uses a C compiler written by Ken Thompson and
doesn't have a C++ compiler. (Well, someone just revived some ancient
cfront, but that doesn't count for much.)
Oh, I just found C++ code in lib/xpdf. That's gonna be a problem.

Sort of, but they're really not considered useful for porting.
When I get my Plan 9 system up & running, I'll start trying to compile
the library components individually and will report on troubles here.
(And to the relevant library people, if applicable.)
