Add a CXX definition when HAS_CONFIGURE is defined, e.g.

.if defined(HAS_CONFIGURE)
	CC="${CC}" ac_cv_path_CC="${CC}" CFLAGS="${CFLAGS}" \
	CXX="{CXX}" ac_cv_path_CXX="{CXX}" CXXFLAGS="${CXXFLAGS}" \

BTW, what is ac_cv_path_* supposed to do?

I'm afraid too... I'm fairly confident, though, that nothing will break
horrifically. A few build options may have to be changed. I have built KDE1
and all dependencies with the new libtool with only one (very minor)

ps. Are you still running bulk builds or have you stopped now the freeze is
