Would you care to show us your Makefile.am?
automake should be using CXX (and CXXFLAGS and AM_CXXFLAGS) to invoke
the C++ compiler, *not* CC/CFLAGS/AM_CFLAGS. It should pick the
correct compiler if you specifiy the sources properly:
bin_PROGRAMS = foo
foo_SOURCES = foo.cc
will work, but if you miss out the _SOURCES, it will imply foo.c as
being the source, since C is the default language.
Does configure.ac call the "AC_PROG_CXX" macro? Without it, automake
won't know anything about there being a C++ compiler available.
Whether you love or hate libtool, this is not a libtool problem. Are
you using libtool 1.5 yet?
