It's not possible.  We support only C++ code.  Internally gccxml is
a patch to the GCC 4.2 C++ compiler.  It is hard-wired to the data
structures for C++ parsing.

I suggest looking at Clang for both C and C++ parsing support:


Their source is supposed to be fairly modular in organization and is
intended to support authoring tools besides compilers e.g. static
analysis tools.
