 gcc built, but when I try to run it it gives the following
message:

cpp: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp': Arg list too long

If I run it with -v, the ouput is over 300,000 characters
all but the first couple hundred are arguments to
cpp.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

You would check following items:
 
1) gcc -v ( I use gcc v2.8.1)
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i486-lynx-lynxos/2.8.1/specs
gcc version 2.8.1
 
2) ls /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i486-lynx-lynxos/2.8.1/
SYSCALLS.c.X    cc1plus*        libgcc.a        
cc1*            cpp*            libobjc.a      
cc1obj*         include/        specs
 
3) /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i486-lynx-lynxos/2.8.1/cpp -v AnyFile.c
GNU CPP version 2.8.1 (80386, BSD syntax)
#include "..." search starts here:
#include <...> search starts here:
 /usr/local/include
 /usr/local/i486-lynx-lynxos/include
 /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i486-lynx-lynxos/2.8.1/include
 /usr/include
....
 
 
If You saw like messeges, then you would describe ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES of gcc,
which is desribed in /usr/local/info/gcc.info-28.
Or you can write next script in /usr/local/bin/cpp
#!/bin/bash
/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i486-lynx-lynxos/2.8.1/cpp -traditional "$@"
