I haven't seen a problem with mixing the system's libstdc++ with
a version from lang/gcc46.  I can assure you that the problem
is very really with libc++ vs libstdc++ within the ports collection.
To getting working news/pan and math/octave, I had to recompile
graphics/graphite2, graphics/libGL, graphics/libGLU, and
x11-toolkits/fltk with "USE_GCC=any" to avoid the conflict. 
Fortunately, I have only another 360 installed ports to check for
the conflict.
