You may wish to try the following:

for Bourne shells like 'sh', 'ash', 'bash', or 'zsh' use:

  CPP=/opt/PE/bin/cpp
  export CPP

For Csh shells like 'tcsh' or 'csh' use:
  setenv CPP /opt/PE/bin/cpp

and then rerun your configure command and see if that helps you.

Basically, configure is trying to find a way to preprocess some files
and is trying various means to do that job.

        Good luck,
