OpenJDK7 build and contributions

Does EOL of Java 7 mean this mailing list and the hg repo won't be active
anymore? Are you still accepting contributions for OpenJDK7 - who can
contribute and what kinds of contributions are accepted?

I also have tried to build OpenJDK7 on Ubuntu and builds fine but when
building on Fedora I get this error:

Linking vm...
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lstdc++
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

I also get this message:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/'

Are both these caused by LD_LIBRARY_PATH not set to where stdc++ library is
placed ? This is causing the hotspot repo to break from building, all other
repos build fine.

What's a proper fix ?
