Hmmm.... So how does this relate to the field Project->Project 
Options->Configure Options->C++->Compiler flags (CXXFLAGS):? 

What I did to make things work was remove the parts of the acinclude.m4 and 
aclocal.m4 which looked like they were causing the problem. You can see the 
diffs below.  

I have to say this situation seems wrong.  Am I to understand the default of 
"-fno-exceptions" and "-fno-rtti" to be an autotools "feature"?  Can this be 
explained in terms that reasonable minds can understand?

Regards,
Steven
