Hi All,

I just downloaded today the snapshot of buildroot and try to compile it
as is without modifying the default configuration.
Everything compile fine except when configuring sudo-1.6.8p9 package ; I
got the following error:
[ ... ]
checking for i686-linux-g++...
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether
inux-uclibc-g++ accepts -g... no
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
make: ***
red] Error 1

Do you know which mistake I did?
Or is it an already known issue?

PS: I used a derivative version of KNOPPIX distro, called

Many thanks for your collaboration.
