>From what I read in the thread you attached, the Intel engineers
feel this is the result of bad configure invocation, and I'm inclined
to agree with them.  You set CPP in the environment, overriding any
value configure may have otherwise tried to deduce, and the value you
supplied was incorrect.  Normally, you should only override such
variables if configure is unable to find them by itself; in this
case, configure was perfectly capable of figuring out the
C preprocessor is 'icc -E', given that icc is the C compiler.
