Its OK, 

I was banging my head against the wall all night, but eventually was 
inspired to look through the /usr/lib/*.so files for something that had the 
symbol F97ostream or some such... can't quite remember what exactly.

When I found one with this symbol I looked at what the library was linked 
to and looked for anything I wasn't linking to..

turned out to be /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 

Still can't claim to fully understand it, but I found it and it now work...
