I cannot find that feeling being expressed in the discussion.

You are setting CPP to the same value as CC:


Autoconf essentially does this by default:

CPP="$CC -E"

Since the compiler doesn't know that it's called as a preprocessor, it
fails sanity check as a preprocessor.  The key question is why you want to
override CPP.

In fact, this is explained in the reply from "10/15/2002 12:53:27 PM" and
I don't see anybody disagreeing or explaining why overriding CPP is

If you just provided your current understanding of the problem (rather
than your understanding before you got a reply from Intel), I would be
able to answer your question.  By posting this HTML file you look like a
person who got a reply already and failed to understand it.

I think it's better if you don't send HTML to this list (I have noticed 
your e-mail because it ended up in my spam folder).  There may be legal 
issues with sending pages from private servers to public mailing lists.

I suggest that all the mail containing HTML attachments is held for
moderator approval.  I'm sorry to tell you, but there is a strong
correllation between HTML attachments and e-mails that contribute exactly
nothing to the community.
