I think the best fix here would be one Todd suggested a while back. Have
lint stop calling cccp directly, and use ${CC} -E instead. Then if ${CC}
defines the right things, which it should, you're golden.

This solution is correcter in the long run as only the compiler really
knows what it defines, and as we're seeing, keeping lint up is cumbersome.

Also, it'd help cross compiling IMMENSLY!

Take care,
