configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check HELP

I keep getting this error when I try to ./configure a program (gimp).
I have downloaded gcc2.96-2.96-0.83mdk.src.rpm and tried to install it but I also get an error also "Some package requested cannot be installed:
gcc2.96-2.96-0.83mdk.src (due to unsatisfied bison[<= 1.35])
do you agree ? " Which i choose Yes. What am i doing wrong or do I have something screwed up??? I have installed all the components that have gcc in the title on my Mandrake 10 CDs restarted but sill same errors.
Any suggestions?????
