User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
I insatalled gcc/g++ RPM 2.96-112.7.2.i386 and found that file
"g++-3/std/bastring.h" has error in the line # 343 in the 
statement "if(length() == 0) return "";" : if the string template
is instantiated with the differen then "char" base type (in my case
it was wide character) compilation fail ("" is a pointer to char and
it cannot be used/casted as/to pointer to the different type).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Define a string of wide characters;
2.call method "c_str()"


Actual Results:  Compilation error

Expected Results:  no error

libstdc++ before the rewrite which showed up in GCC 3.0 doesn't support wide
chars (with the exception of the latest RHAS version).
