cpp fails sanity check???


Hello all!

I've recently installed Debian on my box, but when I try to install something from source, I get the error:
Code:
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor '/lib/cpp' fails sanity check
See config.log for more details.
How do I fix this???
Any ideas???

Did you have a look at config.log?
Try installing g++ if cpp wants a dependency on it.
If installing g++ doesn't work, post: ls -l /usr/bin/gcc* /usr/bin/cpp* /usr/bin/g++*

I tried to install g++ and it went fine. The gpp doesn't fail now. Thanks a lot!
