I have installed gcc45 by using brew tap homebrew/versions & brew install gcc45. However, I can not find g++-4.5 in /usr/local/bin. How can I install g++-4.5 separately by Homebrew? Thanks.

My system 10.6.8.


Looks like the g++ part is not built by default. Build it with brew install gcc45 --enable-cxx and g++-4.5 will appear. See brew info gcc45 for details on the build options.

[@ in /usr/local/bin on ⇄ master]
$ brew install gcc45 --enable-cxx
