I ran ./mach bootstrap on a minimal fedora 19 system and gcc-g++ wasn't included in the set of packages installed.  Listing a package that's in a package group as an individual package shouldn't do any harm.

This fixes it for me on Fedora 19.  Installing a package that's already there doesn't cause failures, so this is safe even for machines which already have gcc-c++

I couldn't find gcc-c++ in the Fedora online package database. But I did find gcc. Is gcc-c++ supported in all versions of Fedora? If not, this should be behind a conditional.

I'd like more info before granting review so we don't inadvertently bust bootstrap for Fedora 20+.

Please alphabetize the list.

Sorry, didn't see the review comments as I am absolutely flooded by spam from uplifting.

Yes, I think it's still a worthwhile fix.  I double checked that the gcc-c++ package is in the repo metadata for the fedora 20 repository as you called that out specifically.  I also verified that this package is present for all supported release versions as well as Fedora nightlies (aka Rawhide).  I didn't bother to go back to 17 and before, but I've always known this to be the name of the c++ compiler on Fedora, and I started on Fedora 8.

This is a snippet from the metadata of the Fedora 20 repository:

 296974   <name>gcc-c++</name>
 296975   <arch>x86_64</arch>

And here are the packages for all current versions of Fedora:
