I have been told that CC *is* a c++ compiler. So if anything is called
CC on your system which can't compile c++ code that may be an
installation problem. Mayve CC is just a link to gcc which shouldn't
exist because the c++ compiler isn't installed?

libtool shouldn't check for all those languages but I haven't found an
easy way to disable these checks without manual fiddling.
