Almost 5k lines?  Is cplus-dem.c actually text source code? The error
makes me think it could be an object file...

Character 0177 is DEL, not normally found in text files.

If the file and all included files ("gcc -M cplus-dem.c") are clean text
files then the 0177 may be due to a compiler bug.

What is the gcc version?  Can it compile helloworld.c?

Is a "-x" gcc option used (improperly) in the makefile?

For asking questions? I aim to please.... :)
