I will quote Brad King, the creator of GCCXML, from the gccxml list in a 
thread regarding this problem (hope he does not mind):

"As I said the GCC parser cannot always handle the results of 
preprocessing as if using VC7.1.  In the case of system headers the 
GCC-XML installation copies and patches them to fix the problems.  In 
this case all the VC-specific hacks in boost are confusing GCC-XML."

Hopefully Brad can shed some more light in a possible workaround. :)
