"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

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