I agree with that. But as soon a bignum library will be available in Boost
I'll try to integrate it to allow cross compilation etc.

The answer is no. But nothing prevents you from changing the wave driver and
add a -E option (or something similar) which instructs wave to always output
the preprocessed tokens to a file names *.i. But if this is of general
interest I can do that as well, it's not terribly difficult to implement in
the end.
