I'd prefer finding out why g++ can't find the header file if
it is in /usr/include/c++/3.1.1.  It is supposed to search the
path automatically.

Adding an included path should not be necessary.  g++ -v should
tell you why it can't find new.

Just to be really clear: If you find that you need to add an include
path for something, that's a bug.  You certainly shouldn't have to do
something special to find standard header files.
