Trying to install proftpd from sources getting some errors.


Hi
I just installed centos on one of my servers ive never used it before so im trying to install proftpd i tried
Code:
yum install proftpd
but yum says the package cant be found. so now im down to installing proftpd from sources i got the proftpd-1.3.2.tar.gz extracted it and i try running
Code:
./configure
but it gives out this error after about 20-30secs:
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.
so i thought maybe its not installed so i ran
Code:
yum install cpp
it outputs this after a few seconds:
Code:
Package cpp-4.1.2-44.el5.i386 already installed and latest version
so whats wrong?
