cpp0.exe was present in the same directory as cc1.exe (put there by the 
gcc compiler), up to gcc 3.2.3: it was c:\mingw\lib\gcc-lib\mingw32\3.2.3.
Starting with gcc 3.4.5 the organisation of the directories was changed: 
cc1.exe is in the directory C:\MinGW\libexec\gcc\mingw32\3.4.5 and 
cpp0.exe disappeared.
This is a gcc problem I am not familiar with, and I do not know whether 
it is possible to produce cpp0 by some option in compiling the gcc 
compiler, replace cpp0.exe by something like cpp.exe (which exists in 
c:\mingw\bin) with some option, or to change  altogether the program 
which calls cpp0.exe

Anybody here more familiar with C ?
