AC_PROG_CXX is, presumably, needed by classpath in order to build the Qt peers.
Although this is not the default configuration, it means we can't remove

The libjava configure gets around this issue using GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES, which
disables linking of configure tests where possible. One solution is to add
GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES to the classpath configure.

Unfortunatly this introduces a divergance from the upstream configure.ac. We
also need to butcher classpath's AC_CHECK_FUNCs because many of these do not
work with GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES. However, they are probably not needed anyway
because we do not build classpath's JNI code - only the AWT peers. Perhaps the
AC_CHECK_FUNCs can be made conditional so as to reduce divergance from upstream?
