the attached patch tests that the C and C++ compilers actually exist
and work. autoconf seems to default to 'g++' when C++ compiler is not
found, which causes the following error (when the compiler isn't

checking for uuid_generate in -luuid... no
configure: error: cannot link with -luuid, install uuid-dev.

The config.log contains the real error message "g++ command not found"
but the error message shown to the user is misleading. This issue can
be reproduced by running:

CXX="this.doesnt.exist" ./configure

with current master.
