I just installed Redhat 7.2 and then Suns JDK1.4 only to get an error about a missing shared library

[antony at ringo antony]$ javac
Error: failed /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0/jre/lib/i386/client/, because cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So then I did....

[root at ringo /]#cd /usr/lib 
[root at ringo lib]# ls -l libstdc++-*
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       478454 Sep  5 03:09 libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.a
-r-xr-xr-x    1 root     root       419374 Sep  5 03:09
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           30 Feb 26 23:25 libstdc++-libc6.2-2.a.3 -> libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.a
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           31 Feb 26 23:18 ->
[root at ringo lib]# 

[root at ringo lib]# ln -s

Problem solved(javac now works), or is it really?  Should I really install a package which contains the or is backward compatiable with
