Due to introduction of C++11 features in their headers, gccxml
unfortunately does not fully support VS 10:

ABI information cannot be reliably extracted from gccxml output
because it does not really know anything about the real compiler's
target architecture.  The size is there only because it was easy
to implement and was useful to some people, but is not an accurate
representation of the ABI used by the real compiler.
