configure fails to detect g++
From: Rainer Müller <raimue () macports org>

Hi,

the configure script of nmap fails when invoked with CXX being set to a
non-path value in the environment.

We at MacPorts [1] are using a special way to invoke ccache for
building. When using ccache, we prepend it to the path to the actual
compiler.

So the result in the environment is:
   CC="ccache /usr/bin/gcc-4.0"
   CXX="ccache /usr/bin/g++-4.0"

While the configure script of nmap accepts this for CC without problems,
it errors out on CXX:

configure: error: Could not locate a C++ compiler. If it exists, add it
to your PATH or give configure the CXX=path_to_compiler argument.
Otherwise, install a C++ compiler such as g++ or install a binary
package of Nmap (see http://nmap.org/download.html ))
--snap--

Seems like the configure script tries to check if CXX is set to a real
path. But actually it already called it before to check if CXX is g++
and whether CXX accepts -g. So this check seems unnecessary to me.

For now we just disabled ccache for this port, but it would be nice to
get this working.

I attached the full config.log to this mail. If you need further
information, please ask.
