Should depmod/modprobe really need libg++

I just tried out the latest 970301 modutils with Linus-2.1.20 still
no luck.

In addition depmod/modprobe requires yet another library libg++.
Is this wise? My rescue disks are already large enough and since
typical usage requires depmod & modprobe at boot more space is needed
either for the additional library or for the libg++ bit to be statically
linked in. I certainly don't remember libg++ being part of the essential
libraries in the FSSTD. What's going on with the modutils?
