The cpp is a *C* preprocessor, and if it has been written to adhere to
the C standard, it is required to diagnose tokens that are not valid C
preprocessing tokens (such as string literals that do not end before the
end of a line).  As such, this is unsurprising.

It would probably make most sense to make cpphs the (only) preprocessor
used with -cpp instead of using whatever *C* preprocessor happens to be
in the path.
