Re: "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check?

Hello again,

Well it appears that my webhoster does not allow C programs to be  
compiled on their servers.  That's why gcc doesn't work (even though  
gcc is there!)

Plan B - can anyone provide a binary suitable for running on Linux,  
Kernel version 2.6.9-34.ELsmp Machine Type i686?
