This seems odd. Take a simple C++ program

#include <cmath>
#include <iostream>

int main(void) {

    std::cout << "Square root of 9 is " << sqrt(9) << std::endl;


which passes fine with g++ (4.8) but fails to compile with clang++ (3.3).

edd@don:/tmp$ g++ -o cmath cmath.cpp 
edd@don:/tmp$ ./cmath 
Square root of 9 is 3
edd@don:/tmp$ clang++ -o cmath cmath.cpp 
In file included from cmath.cpp:2:
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.8/../../../../include/c++/4.8/cmath:41:10: \
       fatal error: 
      'bits/c++config.h' file not found
#include <bits/c++config.h>
1 error generated.

I suspect I am missing something blatantly obvious.

And I do have the relevant -dev package:

edd@don:/tmp$ COLUMNS=72 dpkg -l | grep "clang\|llvm"

Edit: I had failed to check the Bug Tracking System, this is in in fact know at Launchpad.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I see bug report WON'T FIXED, 13.10 isn't supported anymore, and 3.3 is removed in 15.04. So I voted to close it. – Sneetsher Sep 21 '15 at 4:53
@Sneetsher: You do understand that I filed this nearly two years ago when that distribution version and package were current? – Dirk Eddelbuettel Sep 21 '15 at 11:54
Yeah, I do. I just see the question get aged away. I don't any one is going to answer. But if want, you can write one mention the workaround from the bug report that add -i /path-to-std-headers. That will any coming later here. 7 votes seem have some attraction. :) – Sneetsher Sep 21 '15 at 12:05
