Add more info to "C Compiler not found"

I was receiving "C compiler not found", and couldn't figure out why. After looking into the configuration script I found the error log file that helped me to find that I was missing some libraries: libmpc and libmpfr.

I'd recommend to let the user know where to look for more info. So here is a patch to my suggestion.

file: nginx/auto/feature

[arthur@XPS auto]$ diff feature.old feature

<     echo " not found"
>     echo " not found (check $NGX_AUTOCONF_ERR for more info)"

There are lots of "not found" messages printed under normal conditions, and adding link to autoconf.err to all of them is certainly wrong.
