Well, I changed it to use AC_PROG_CPP (I had actually written more
tests in the meantime to check for cpp in other places, but in lieu of
this I removed those).  Since it requires a .c file, I symlinked it to
a temporary file and then had it read that.  It seems to work for the
most part at the moment, but only testing will tell.
