Bug#690315: nvidia-cuda-toolkit: version in backports doesn't work with libstdc++ in squeeze

Package: nvidia-cuda-toolkit
Version: 4.2.9-1~bpo60+1
Severity: important

The squeeze-backports version of nvidia-cuda-toolkit doesn't actually
work on a squeeze/squeeze-backports system because libcudart
references symbols from a newer libstdc++.

Luckily, a simple replacement of the
cudatoolkit_4.2.9_linux_64_ubuntu11.04.run with
cudatoolkit_4.2.9_linux_64_ubuntu10.04.run (11.04 vs 10.04; and the
same for the 32 bit versions) in the source package followed by a
build produces a working package, so this is relatively easy to fix.

You can verify whether it works or not by trying to compile the C
samples from gpucomputingsdk_4.2.9_linux.run...
