This is almost certainly the problem.  As I said the GCC parser cannot 
always handle the results of preprocessing as if using VC7.1.  In the 
case of system headers the GCC-XML installation copies and patches them 
to fix the problems.  In this case all the VC-specific hacks in boost 
are confusing GCC-XML.  The code will have to be modified to be aware of 
GCC-XML by using the __GCCXML__ macro to adjust which hacks are used.
