Well, I would have thought the AM_PROG_CXX macro should notice if the 
C++ compiler is missing, but I guess not...?

...and it even worked and didn't blow up or anything? ;-D

Well, there are .desktop files and icons in the included icons.tar.gz, 
but I haven't written any script to install them anywhere. They're 
provided so distro maintainers have something to use for their 
packages. (They were in fact submitted by distro maintainers in the 
first place.)

Not quite sure how to properly detect a "compliant" desktop 
environment that can use these files - or even if it's generally 
desirable for a non distro specific autotools packages to try such 
things by default. Guess it can't do any serious damage anyway...
