OpenSUSE is not alone in building APR without explicit C++ support. If
I let Subversion pick APR's libtool on my Debian box then when building
libsvn_auth_kwallet I see warnings of the form:

   libtool: ignoring unknown tag CXX

One consequence of this missing C++ tag is that libsvn_auth_kwallet is
linked using x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc rather than g++. It appears to work
on my Debian box but is that going to work everywhere?
