I don't know what the problem is, but perhaps gcc is picking up the
wrong cpp.exe. Run gcc with -v option and see what it's really doing.
Perhaps you have GCC_EXEC_PREFIX defined in the environment (or
COMPILER_PATH or LIBRARY_PATH) that is interfering with GCC's
lookup algorithm for subprograms like cpp.
btw, you don't really want to put user files *anywhere* under the
compiler install directory. It's very bad practice to mess with
software installation area.
