Can you send me your config.log file?  Sometimes this happens
because cpp generates a warning about changing the order of
default search paths.  configure perceives this warning as an
error.  One thing I do is to modify the configure script
and replace all occurrences of $ac_cpp with $ac_cpp -w.  The
-w turns off warnings and configure won't be mislead.
