Virtualbox depends on core/gcc-libs, which contains libstdc.so.6.
Build does not need libstdc++.so.5 contained in orphaned package extra/libstdc++5.
Build is successful without makedepends=libstdc++5 and with no /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 available.

Additional info:
* package version: virtualbox 6.1.32-1
* config: virtualbox 6.1.32-1 PKGBUILD, removed makedepends=libstdc++5 from it
* tested on: Manjaro unstable branch
* result: success, no build issues encountered

Steps to reproduce:
* remove makedepends=libstdc++5 from virtualbox PKGBUILD
* run makepkg
