The installed "cpp" goes in /usr/bin while gcc puts its preproccessor
somewhere under /usr/lib/gcc-2.7.2/...  The should be totally
independant packages.  I don't see why the "cpp" packages is listed
as providing anything or why gcc should depend upon cpp since in puts
its preprocessor in its own directory.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
