I have noticed the same problem here.

At least in here, it does.  Moreover, it works with option -cpp /lib/cpp, 
going through the symlink.  Additionally, after you have made it work using 
-cpp /lib/cpp, it continues working correctly without any -cpp options.  Quite 
annoying, really...

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root      14 Nov 27 16:02 /lib/cpp -> ../usr/bin/cpp
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     root   77076 Oct 25 11:02 /usr/bin/cpp
