Oops, seems I should read *all* my old mail before responding:-) -

Well, it seems the problem is rather obvious - your gcc installation is
broken, or rather incomplete, and doesn't have support for C++
compilation. Doing a full gcc (re-)install would probably fix this, I
guess there is some package available for this but I'm afraid I'm not
familiar with Caldera OpenLinux. Then again, if you don't need the orber
application, you should be able to do without - the base system is
written in plain old C, and so doesn't need C++ support.
