Automake setups its dependency tracking code for various
languages with code similar to the above.  Actually, the above
would work if Libtool was not running expanding AC_PROG_CXX
itself! (This happens when AC_LIBTOOL_LANG_CXX_CONFIG is
expanded in _LT_AC_TAGCONFIG.)

As I see it, the only way to achieve what you want would be to
rewrite the `case $tagname' switch from _LT_AC_TAGCONFIG in
plain M4 (instead of shell).  This way you can ensure that
AC_LIBTOOL_LANG_CXX_CONFIG is expanded only if AC_PROG_CXX has
been called first.  Likewise for other languages.  However I
don't think you can do this and still allow AC_PROC_CXX to be
called after AC_PROG_LIBTOOL.
