I looked at http://www.alias.com/eng/support/maya/qualified_hardware/QUAL/maya_65_linux.html
And it does seem that maya provides all libraries needed. 
Maybe you can play with the LDPAT variable environment. You can indicate a different libraries path instead of the standard one (look at http://www.visi.com/~barr/ldpath.html for more explanation)

AFAIK, liking with library without a lot of care must be hazardous (program crash). Especially with non C library like the libstdc++. Each compiler, moreover, and some time each version of compiler write the libstc++ in a different way. And if your programme compiled with on version of g++ tried to load a C++ object in a libstd++ compiled with another version, it may cause a program crash. 

Sorry for my bad English, but French people doesn't be famous for their foreign language skill.
