I am no expert on building gccxml, but I think supporting Visual Studio 
C++ compilers in this context normally mean to use a pre-built gccxml to 
parse VC++ source files, including headers that come with that 
compiler.  I.e. _simulate_ the VC++ compilers.  Whether anybody before 
you has atempted or succeded building gccxml with VC++ is something I 
have no knowledge of , but it seems like a steep road  too start on if 
nobody has done it before you.

Under the heading "simulate the following compiler", not "gccxml is 
building on the following compilers".
