My guess is that both "gcc test.c" and "g++ test.c" defines
__STDC_LIMIT_MACROS, while neither "g++ test.cpp" nor "gcc test.cpp"
does so (or whatever your preferred spelling of .cpp is).

I.e. both gcc and g++ behaves differently depending on the file
extension. The autoconf feature tests presumably uses a .c extension
and gets __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS defined, while your project uses
one of the C++ extensions (.cpp, .C, .cc, or something) and don't
get it defined.

If the above guesswork holds, then I wonder why your project uses
C++ file extensions and $CC (your said it was a C file). It should
be either C file extensions and $CC, or C++ file extensions and
$CXX. Or?

If the above guessing doesn't hold, then please ignore me...
