[freetds] Error when running ./config

Let me first apologize for being a novice :)

When running ./config I get the following error:

checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.

I checked the config.log file and here is what it shows:

|                      Syntax error
configure:4772: /lib/cpp  -D_FREETDS_LIBRARY_SOURCE conftest.cc
cpp: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1plus': No such file or
configure:4778: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| #line 4758 "configure"
| /* confdefs.h.  */

If I run command above as root I get the following:

/lib/cpp -D_FREETDS_LIBRARY_SOURCE conftest.cc
cpp: conftest.cc: No such file or directory
cpp: no input files

I think this is a problem with conftest.cc but I am not able to figure
out exactly what it is or how to fix it. I am running Red Hat Enterprise
Linux AS (4.4 for 32-bit x86.
Any help is appreciated - thks!
