What happens if you don't have g++ installed?  As far as I could tell,
AM_PROG_CXX should not fail in this situation, so building should work.
Isn't this the case?

That relies on internal magic in automake, so that's not something I'd
want to integrate.  I can try to come up with something better, or
report it as an automake bug, if I can understand better what the real
problem is (see above).
