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


I keep getting this out put when trying to compile hobbit...

###########Output from MAKE##############################################
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
checking dependency style of g++... none
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
make[1]: *** [c-ares/Makefile] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/hobbit-4.2.0/bbnet'
make: *** [bbnet-build] Error 2
#########################################################################

I have looked at the config.log it is a long file. i dont see anything in there that jumps out as my problem.
Anyone have any ideas?????
Thanks

found it...

I need the C++ compiler for gcc
however when i was looking i was not searching for the correct thing. i needed gcc-c++

yum provides gcc-c++
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
gcc-c++.i386 : C++ support for GCC
