This is not an Imake error.
This is gcc installation problem. You have a bad gcc installation.

ALL of this is absolutely not allowed. Renaming gcc.exe or g++.exe to cpp.exe is NOT
permitted at all.
Of cource you have cpp.exe, if you have gcc installed properly.

I am not aware of an IMAKE.EXE from MKS NT tools. Correct me, as far as I know MKS (aka DataFocus) does not provide X11 stuff with NT tools, unless you license Nutcraker from them.

You need to read a good book on GNU tools. I think http://www.delorie.com
DJ Delorie has some very good references on books which might help you.
I hope this help
