Most of the support for a compiler is related to running the compiler 
executable to figure out where it keeps the standard include files and a 
few other details.  Support for MinGW's gcc has not been implemented. 
You can manually configure this stuff if necessary...see the 
GCCXML_CONFIG setting in the docmentation.

There is support for MSVC8 in the CVS source.  If you checkout the 
source and build it with MSVC8 using CMake you will get a gccxml 
executable that supports VC8.
