[cairo] [PATCH v2 3/3] configure.ac: Fix broken build for Qt backend

When --enable-qt is specified, the build will break due to missing

  CCLD     cairo-test-suite
/usr/bin/ld: ../boilerplate/.libs/libcairoboilerplate.a(libcairoboilerplate_cxx_la-cairo-boilerplate-qt.o): undefined reference to symbol '__gxx_personality_v0@@CXXABI_1.3'
//usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

When using g++ to compile and link code, g++ automatically links
libstdc++.  However, in cairo we're using g++ only to compile, so need
to explicitly link against libstdc++ for backends that need iostream,
stl, or other stdc++ features.
