When you have a problem like this, go to www.pbone.net and
do an advanced search for the file you are missing for the
distribution you are using.

Searching for both g++ and cc1plus gives me the answer that
I should get the "gcc-c++" package. So a "apt-get install gcc-c++"
should solve your problem.
