I was insufficiently clear in my last message.  You can try to use
$CPP on something that isn't named with a `.c' suffix.  It's just that
this might not work on all systems.  I'd imagine this is really only a
problem for some ancient systems.

You could add a test to to see if CPP fails for a random
file, and then abort in this case.

That way you wouldn't have to make the symlink at runtime.
