           Summary: Use system cpp instead of q3cpp
           Product: Quake 3
           Version: SVN HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Misc
        AssignedTo: zakk at icculus.org
        ReportedBy: bugzilla at benmachine.co.uk
         QAContact: quake3-bugzilla at icculus.org

There's no reason why the QVMs need their own C preprocessor, since cpp is not
architecture-dependent. I recommend we remove it and use whatever is installed
on the host's machine, bringing the following benefits:
* Use of newer features such as variadic macros made possible in QVMs
* Smaller code download/compile time (admittedly marginally)
* Less code for ioq3 devs to maintain
* Somewhat closer to being free of the mess that is lcc (both codewise and
licencewise: thinking of issues like
http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal/2008/08/msg00116.html )
