Seems like a dependency issue. It might be easiest to just install thunderbird using a package manager. Exactly how to do that depends on your distro, thus pljvaldez's question.

I know fedora has a package manager (yum I think), does RHEL not use that too? If not I guess the next step is to try to track down an rpm for libstdc++
