There is no such thing. There is DJGPP 2.01 with gcc-2.8.1, though,
which is about what you'll probably have found on that CDROM.

Not 'purely', but that's what it's intended for, yes. 'gcc' can nicely
compile C++ files already. Only for linking C++ programs together, you
need the additional libraries that 'gxx' automatically puts in.
