should bash, bash -v and bash -x behave identically?

I'm configuring imagemagick 5.3.3.  I'm on solaris 2.7.

I didn't like the values its finding, so I wanted to 
trace configure.

Turns out I hit something interesting:

        bash -x  (and bash, and sh -vx) run fine
        bash -v (and bash -vx) does bizarre things
        (the value of CPP should be "gcc -E", instead its /lib/cpp
        and it stops there...
Shouldn't bash -x, bash -vx, and bash -v do the same things?

(I built 2.05 to see (I was using 2.04). No difference).
