libstdc++ itself can probably be cross-built with:

  guix build libstdc++ --target=arm-none-eabi

The problem is getting a cross-g++.  I suspect libstdc++ sorta relies on
having a “real” libc, which is why we normally do things like:

   (let ((triplet "arm-linux-gnueabihf"))
     (cross-gcc triplet
                (cross-binutils triplet)
                (cross-libc triplet))))

where the final ‘cross-gcc’ has C++ support.

I’m not sure if it makes sense for the board you’re targeting, but maybe
you could try building with a full-blown cross-gcc like this?
