Configuring nginx with g++

Q1) I have been trying to compile nginx using the C++ compiler as follows:

$ ./configure --with-cc=g++ --add-module=/path/to/module --prefix=/some/prefix

(Also, tried "CC=g++ ./configure ...").

Both these commands result in this error:

creating objs/Makefile
checking for int size ...
./configure: error: can not detect int size

On tail'ing the objs/autoconf.err, the error is obvious(details
below). How do I go about fixing this? And/or is this fixed in a later
release? (I am using 0.8.52). Please let me know.

Q2) The above issue was encountered while trying to write a
handler/module in C++. Is there another way I should be approaching

Please let me know. Any help would be much appreciated.
