Yeah but if the automatic generation fails then it won't include it at
all?

It already does that as far as I can tell. Defining the variable in
Makefile.global instead of libpq++/Makefile doesn't make a difference.

Amen to that, but unfortunately most of the information about which
function was required from which library is lost in history. Btw., the
proper solution to this is AC_SEARCH_LIBS, not what you wrote.

In general, if you want to contribute changes in this area it might be a
good idea to start from the current sources, because I'm all over that
code at the moment.
