[LLVMdev] question on clang c++ support

I am new to linux, llvm and clang, so please excuse me if I ask some basic
level questions. :)

I have some c code with code like below, so it won't compile with clang
#include <math.h>
#include <pthread.h>
#include <sys/time.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <malloc.h>
#include <sched.h>

I think that I need to do the following from the website:

If you intend to work on Clang C++ support, you may need to tell it how to
find your C++ standard library headers. If Clang cannot find your system
libstdc++ headers, please follow these instructions:

   - 'gcc -v -x c++ /dev/null -fsyntax-only' to get the path.
      - Look for the comment "FIXME: temporary hack: hard-coded paths" in
      clang/lib/Frontend/InitHeaderSearch.cpp and change the lines below to
      include that path.

After I run 'gcc -v -x c++ /dev/null -fsyntax-only' at the terminal, the
following error came up:

gcc: error trying to exec 'cc1plus': execvp: No such file or directory

After some googling, it seems that I need to install g++ which has the same
version as the gcc, is it the right solution?
