[PATCH] Fix generation of C code for C++ compilers.

From: Vincent Lefevre
Subject: [PATCH] Fix generation of C code for C++ compilers.
Date: Thu, 26 Aug 2021 01:30:48 +0200

AC_CHECK_LIB fails with a C++ compiler (e.g., g++) because
  #ifdef __cplusplus
  extern "C"
is missing in the generated C code. These 3 lines were removed in
commit 326c9a547423d25c621bc5c0ef76edbf6eda8c92 with the comment
"(AC_LANG_CALL(C)): Remove #ifdef __cplusplus, this macro is no longer
used to generate C++ code."
But this is actually C code compiled with a C++ compiler, not C++ code.
