Cygwin Imake

I downloaded Cygwin X11R6 tools and I am trying to use the Imake that was
provided.  I get the following error when I try and make my Makefile:

> config/imake/nt/imake -I./config/cf -DTOPDIR=. -DCURDIR=.   
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `cpp': No such file or directory
config/imake/nt/imake: Exit code 1.

We don't have a cpp.exe.  We did try renaming c++.exe and gcc.exe but this
did not work.  I have
another Imake that I don't know where it is from but when I use that one I
have problems with the
cygwin sh.exe.

This other Imake works fine with MKS NT tools but I want to get away from
using the MKS NT tools.

I found on the FAC were It tells me that I need to set an environment
variable GCC_EXEC_PREFIX but
it does not tell me what to set it to. 

So, does anyone have any suggestions on solving this problem?
