Ok, I found the problem.  /usr/bin/cpp is not actually cpp, but a script
pointing to /usr/libexec/cpp.  Try linking


to /usr/libexec/cpp.  This should make everything happy.  By the way,
should this perhaps be in the FAQ, or readme or something?  Its quite
nasty, and since it doesn't stop make, its not too noticeable..
