If dapper is like sid, then the g++-3.3 package provides a binary
named /usr/bin/g++-3.3, the g++-4.0 package provides a binary named
/usr/bin/g++-4.0, and the g++ package depends on g++-4.0 and provides a
symlink from /usr/bin/g++ to /usr/bin/g++-4.0.

(Well, sid is up to 4.1, but anyway.)

Also note that the plain g++ package is what is used to build the
other binaries on the system -- so if it installs a version of g++
newer than 3.3, then your boost libraries were also built with a newer
version of g++, so g++-3.3 wouldn't work to build monotone anyway.

Yes, wanted to point it out because it was just contributed a day or
two ago :-).
