Why should you have to compile Wave with the non-conformant compiler in
order to use wave with it?

Download GCC, build Wave, delete GCC, then use Wave to replace your
non-conformant compiler's preprocessor.

This isn't ideal, but it's not impossible and allows Wave to be used on
any platform that GCC runs on.

What am I missing? Why should it be a requirement that Wave be
compilable with all broken compilers that might want a better CPP ?
