Mine reports that too, and I had no trouble. (no APM either)

That was a messed up upgrade. Be sure to remove all traces of
your old gcc before you install the new one. I know they are
supposed to coexist, but they do not. You may have a /bin/sh
script called cpp that looks for cpp and gets the wrong one.

I am using gcc 2.7.2.1 with no problems.
