Without more information, it is very hard to tell what's going on. The
-remap option was added not too long ago to support filename mapping in
cpp via "header.gcc", and you might have trouble bootstrapping using an
older compiler.

Why don't you provide a bit more info on exactly what you're doing? eg.,
what is the version of gcc that you're using to bootstrap (you *are*
running ``make bootstrap'', right), etc.
