[Libvir] Finally - fix the build on Debian

The attached patch fixes three separate build problems on Debian:

(1) The libtool autoconf macro is wrong in that it requires a C++ 
compiler and /lib/cpp, neither of which seems to be really needed.

(2) If you pass -fstack-protector while compiling, then you also need to 
pass it while linking, so that gcc knows to link -lssp.

(3) Long-standing problem that xencapstest.c won't compile --without-xen.

Well, OK so I didn't actually fix (1), but I did add a note to the TODO 
file pointing out the problem.  So you'll still need to install the 
Debian "g++" package before you can compile libvirt.
