Today I completed my tests and I workarounded the problem.

In cygwin a file system case insensitive makes CC runs cc, as shown in
this text:

$ which CC
$ which cc
$ ls /usr/bin/[Cc][Cc]*
/usr/bin/cc.exe /usr/bin/ccache.exe /usr/bin/ccmake.exe

moreover 'cc --version' and 'CC --version' give the same output.

So I installed gcc-g++ to make CC act as a C++ compiler (since it is a
frontend that call cc1plus from gcc-c++ package).

Now, when your configure script run, it find CC and test if it is a C++
compiler and the test succeed.
