OK.  I think you'd compiled CC Mode OK the first time, but recompiling
won't have done any harm.

They look like the expected messages.

That looks fine.

This looks to be not false, but probably not quite what you want.  It
will enable font-lock only for AWK files.  To enable Font Lock for all
of the CC Mode modes, use this:

    (add-hook 'cc-mode-common-hook 'turn-on-font-lock)

These are definitely wrong.  You want to edit .cpp files with c++-mode,
not awk-mode.  The seven modes (c-mode, c++-mode, java-mode, objc-mode,
idl-mode, pike-mode, awk-mode) are variants on a single theme, but
aren't identical.

You should just remove these three lines; those settings were already in

Er...  Um...  How is your system, set up as you've just described, not
working right at the moment?  This is quite helpful information.  ;-)
