My horrendous hack around this problem was to make a /lib/cpp what was
a stupid shellscript wrapper. Sure its a hack, but it required less work
than beating up X's config files...

cryptic(23)# cat /lib/cpp
exec /usr/libexec/cpp -traditional $*

It works for me, except that now my imake binaries are spewing corrupt
Makefiles. It's pretty clearly a bug in fputs(), as it (mostly) went away
when I forced imake to fflush() after EVERY fputs() it made.
    For what its worth, I just finished installing the latest binaries
from the lamp mirror on iastate ('cept for the kernel, which panics when
it mounts root :-( My curent kernel is about 2 weeks old compiled from
current sources. ).
