Basically if u can compile c++ programs, and then run them, then u don't
need to worry. rpm makes sure that u install all the dependent packages b4 u
install a new 1, so u shud not be missing any package to run the compiler.
Though for c++ development, u might like to hav additional tools, which u
will have to find and install, as and when u require them (either for your
own programs, or to compile 3rd party programs!!)  Personally i prefer to do
a install everything red hat install for my delvelopment/workstation
machines, so i hav never needed to install a cpp compiler.
