Yes, the change for arch is from /lib to /usr/lib, though I haven't found the 
specifics for cpp. My guess at this point is that a sym link isn't being made.

I'm checking all ends -- if it isn't a whacky path in tdebase, I'll report 
back and close the report. I haven't had the couple of hours needed to pick 
through this line-by-line yet. I'll hopefully get some time tonight. Nothing 
like having 3 kids between 7 and 13 to make that evaporate though :)
