 > Can you try running bootstrap again on your machine?
 Having re-bootstrapped the system, a new problem has occurred: I can't
 build any package that includes C++ code.
 Even if I invoke 'ac_cv_prog_CXXCPP="CC -E" CXX="CC" CXXCPP="CC -E"
 bmake', the output I get from configure is:
 checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... CC\ -E -E
 configure: error: C++ preprocessor "CC\ -E -E" fails sanity check
 See `config.log' for more details.
 *** Error code 1
 Something is adding an unwanted slash to the C++ compiler binary, and
 so configure is trying to invoke "CC " - with a trailing space.
 I've updated to CVS current, and this is still a problem.  What can I
 change to fix this?
