The main problem is that by default GCC does not build any of the C++
libraries for the H8300H. We are not sure whether this is a mere
oversight, or an explicit decision based on some information we don't
You could try editing the GCC config scripts to re-enable C++
support. Or edit the h8300_h8300h.ld file and remove the reference to
libsupc++ in the GROUP() line. The latter is probably easiest.
Note that there are a number of other problems with GCC and GDB for
the h8300: the lack of 64 bit integer and double support means that
some test cases fail. The simulator also has a few problems which I am
investigating in spare moments.
