Thanks guys, this advice has helped.  The problem is completely solved!
It turns out that the --with-cxx=g++ option doesn't do the right thing.
It compiles the interpreter source file with g++ but _links_ the program
using "gcc."  I edited the makefile to link using g++ and now exceptions
work in my extension modules.
