Hi all,

I just bootstrapped pkgsrc in a quite minimal Slackware 10.0 box.  All
fine.  But when building libtool-base, I got a failure in the configure
script, which said that /lib/cpp did not produce the expected results.

Upon inspection of config.log, I found that cpp couldn't open cc1plus.
And, after installing the gcc-g++ package, all worked fine.  Which could
be the right solution here?  Mark the package as c++-dependent?  Avoid
using c++?
