quick question - should I be able to use /usr/bin/cpp -E without having installed the compiler binary set? So far on this 5.1.2 host I've got the base and etc sets installed and when trying to use cpp as a pre-processor only, I get the following: Without the compiler set, you should not expect cpp to work; that's a compiler-type tool. |deimos[~/tmp/cpp] 249v>: cpp -E ./blah |cpp: error trying to exec 'cc1': execvp: No such file or directory Arguably it's a bug that cpp itself is in base if the necessary libexec parts are not. Is this intentional? I'd prefer not to install the compiler set if I don't have to as this is a host with limited disk space. You can actually grab files from sets as you want them, by hand. Is there a notion that our 'base' set is supposed to comply with anything particular in POSIX? That seems like it might be sensible, but if so I haven't been aware of it.
