Linux Engine: Problems on Red Hat server with CGI

Thanks for everyone's helpful responses. But our linux man couldn't 
make a go of it... he writes:

We are trying to install the MC-Rev interpreter on RH 9 at our ISP and 
believe that 4 needed files missing.  Our Linux version is:

Linux 2.4.1-008stab043.15.swsoft-smp #1 
SMP Thu Mar 20 16:47:30 MSK 2003 i686 unknown

At least, we think there are 4 files missing (the 4 mentioned in the 
first section of the ldd command shown below as not found).  We tried 
linking to empty files instead, that didn't work.  The loader said the 
files were too short.  We tried alternate versions of these same files 
from other RH servers, that didn't work because, apparently, exactly 
the right versions of CXXABI_1.2 and GLIBCP_3.2 are required.  
Apparently we need exactly the files required by MC-Rev and not 
alternative versions.  We heard that MC-Rev engine didn't really use 
these shared library files and any old version or even empty files 
would work but that does not appear to solve the problem for us, 
perhaps we need more instructions?

If someone can (off list) point me to where they can be found, or ftp 
them to us, or??  Many thanks in advance.
