I'm pretty sure all Linux distributions that include a compiler do
include preprocessor.. But yes, cpp is apparently not in the default
path on some older Red Hat versions. Anyway, since gcc can be specified
with CC variable, it is quite reasonable to use it to run preprocessor
instead of directly calling cpp. CVS version is now using $(CC) -E -.
