Hmmm. This fails. For some reason kgcc doesn't seem to do c++. See below:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... found
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake... found
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for c++... kgcc
checking whether the C++ compiler (kgcc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C++ compiler
        cannot create executables.

I also tried this with CXX="kgcc -xc++" and it failed the same way.
