FYI, this isn't C preprocessor syntax.  It should be just

Does this example work with your compiler, independent of gccxml?

I just tried your example and it works fine with CVS gccxml on both 
windows and linux.

What is the command line of gccxml you're running?  What is the output 
of the command line with the --print flag added?  How about with the 
--debug flag added?
