Configuring dejagnu without a C++ compiler

Subject: Configuring dejagnu without a C++ compiler

Hi Rob,

  The current dejagnu configure script uses the AC_PROG_CXX macro to
  check for a working C++ compiler.  If such a compiler is not found,
  then the configure will fail and dejagnu cannot be built.  C++
  however is not needed in order to build or run dejagnu, and it is
  only used in one test in the testsuite.

  I would like to propose a patch which provides an alternative
  definition of the AC_PROG_CXX macro which does not fail if a
  working compiler cannot be found.  It would mean that the testsuite
  (if run) would report a failed test, but this seems to be a
  reasonable compromise.

  Is this patch acceptable ?

        * acinclude.m4: Provide alternative definition of AC_PROG_CXX
        which does not call AC_PROG_CXX_WORKS.  This allows dejagnu to
        be configured and built without a working C++ compiler.
