Actually, it turns out that this is what you want.

Some systems might not have "/lib/cpp" or any other cpp executable.
Instead, the preprocessor might be integrated into the compiler.  In
this case the only way to run the preprocessor is by running "cc -E".

In the future it is likely that gcc will be built this way (to get
better performance) -- the code to integrate cpp with the body of the
compiler already exists.
