Your meinproc was linked with the wrong gcc. You probably had your CMake 
redetect the compilers while /usr/local/kde/gcc4/bin wasn't in $PATH 
(or /usr/bin was before it).

See below.

That could be....

1) /usr/local/kde/gcc4/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.1.2 isn't in your RPATH
and 2) /usr/lib/ isn't suitable

Given the path above, I doubt that CMake even knew about it. So it wasn't 
ever considered as an -L or rpath parameter.

gcc, however, knows about it. So, when it linked libstreamanalyzer, it 
told the linker (ld) where to find the library. So the linking was 
successful and recorded a symbol dependency with version GLIBCXX_3.4.5.

However, since CMake isn't aware of that path, it didn't add it to RPATH. 
When you run the program, the dynamic linker uses the first libstdc++ it 
can find and we end up with problem #2: it isn't suitable.
