Reconsidering... I guess we could add checks for the presence of the required
header files and libraries. I'm reluctant to do a full AC_CHECK_HEADER here
because that will only succeed if we enable C++ in the configure script, and
right now the extra overhead of enabling C++ in libtool doesn't seem worth it.
As such, we could just do an AC_PREPROC_IFELSE here.
(Obviously the back-ndb Makefile requires C++, and it's currently a hack that
assumes g++. Frankly I'm revolted at the use of C++ here, but NDB doesn't
offer a pure C alternative. I'm stromgly opposed to incurring the overhead of
C++ support across the rest of the source tree just for this backend.)
