This might work and any user is welcome to set GCCXML_FLAGS 
appropriately to use those headers.  The reason GCC-XML does not come 
with those headers for this use is that the idea of "simulating" a 
native compiler's preprocessor is to use its own system headers.  That 
way the dump includes all implementation-defined types the way the 
native compiler sees them.  This is useful for projects that use the 
output to generate wrappers for a specific compiler.

Note that I do plan to add MinGW support in GCC-XML so that one can 
simulate the MinGW version of GCC, but it is not done yet.
