Suppose that you have a system with GCC but no G++ compiler. Then the
following configure script:
AC_INIT(blabla, 0.1)


will produce following output:
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.exe
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for executable suffix... .exe
checking for object suffix... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for g++... no
checking for xlC... no
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
configure: creating ./config.status
and, among others, will substitute CXX and CXXFLAGS variables in
output files.  So it does not detect that in fact there is no working
C++ compiler.  If I remove AC_PROG_CC in this configure script, then
I get correct error message:
checking for C++ compiler default output... configure: error: C++
compiler cannot create executables
But such a check is missing if there is AC_PROG_CC before AC_PROG_CXX.

I've verified it with DJGPP port of Autoconf 2.50 and Cygwin port of
Autoconf 2.52.

Is there any fix or workaround? Please CC me on replies and TIA ;)
