Re: cpp in OS X, information needed

I'm investigating why pkgsrc sets CPP to gcc in OS X.  The comment in
the code says it's because we need to use the gcc-provided cpp, but in
Leopard cpp is just a wrapper around gcc.

If you have 10.4 or earlier, could you please provide the following details?

On my accessible 10.4.11:

- Whether /usr/bin/cpp is a script or a binary.

script (wrapper of gcc -E ?)

Depending on the information we get, we may revert the special setting
in OS X and just use cpp.

For safe side, how about setting conditionally?
keep current settings for ancient Darwin.
