i just dug out an old c++ code that i wrote using automake.
this may be too obvious, but have you tried renaming your
file from .cpp to .cc?

most non-linux, non-windows c++ compilers that i know, only
support .cc and .C as extensions for C++ sources, and when
grepping through the automake docs i only find examples for .cc.

If you make something idiot-proof, the universe creates a better idiot.
