When GCC-XML simulates VC7.1 the preprocessor should act as if it were 
really preprocessing for VC7.1.  The only difference is that __GCCXML__ 
is defined.  Most of the time the internal GCC parser can handle the 
results (thanks to the patched headers).  This may be a case where it 

My guess is that the LLONG_MAX macro is getting defined with an integer 
suffix that is not properly parsed by GCC.  GCC-XML from CVS does have 
support for the VC integer suffixes (like i64).  I see you are using 
version 0.6.  Please try the CVS version.
