Strange. I haven't seen an error like that before. It looks like the
pipe between the C pre-processor and omniidl is failing. I've only
ever seen that happen on Win 9x, and that has a different kind of

Anyway, try editing mk/win32.mk, around line 446. On the line that

  $(BASE_OMNI_TREE)/$(WRAPPER_FPATH)/oidlwrapper.exe $(XLN) -bcxx
  -Wbh=.hh -Wbs=SK.cc

add -T just after the $(XLN).

That makes it use a temporary file rather than a pipe. If that fixes
the problem then there's something very odd about your machine...
