So, it appears that I need something called g++-6. I have both gcc and g++

$ ls /usr/bin/g++*

So, the question is, what is g++-6, and how to I get it?  I tried to find it with cygwin's setup, but it's not on the distro.  I tried to duckduckgo it, but I didn't get anything useful.  Thoughts?  Thanks

g++-6 is version 6 of the C++ compiler in the GNU Compiler Collection.

Cygwin's gcc and g++ is version 7.4.0:
$ g++.exe -dumpversion

Bedrockdb's makefile begins with:

# Set the compiler, if it's not set by the environment.
ifndef GXX
        GXX = g++-6

ifndef CC
        CC = gcc-6

so the C++ compiler (GXX) is set to g++-6 unless GXX is set explicitly.

You need to run make like this:

CC=gcc GXX=g++ make <whatever arguments you gave to make, if any>

This will force make to use g++ instead of g++-6

Hope this helps,
