Installing gccxml tries to use clang and fails #11043

It seems that homebrew defaults to using clang these days. However, that seems to not work for gccxml. Here's the gist for brew install gccxml:

However, when I use --use-gcc, the brew is able to install without issue.

brew install gccxml --use-gcc

My brew doctor seems irrelevant, just mentions some extra dylibs. Here it is for completeness:

Hello. I think you might have a more fundamental issue. Consider these errors:

-- Looking for inttypes.h - not found
-- Looking for memory.h
-- Looking for memory.h - not found
-- Looking for stdint.h
-- Looking for stdint.h - not found
-- Looking for stdlib.h
-- Looking for stdlib.h - not found
-- Looking for string.h
-- Looking for string.h - not found

It certainly should find those no matter what software you are brewing. This suggests a deeper error, perhaps related to XCode-4, Lion, and maybe xcode-select -print-path ...

Did you run a brew update before trying to build this? Will you paste you brew --config please? thx.

Sorry for the slow response. I ran a brew update before I tried brew install gccxml. I just tried those both again, and it still fails in the same way. The correct Xcode is xcode-select'd (I'm on the latest Xcode from the App Store).

$ xcode-select -print-path

My Brew config is pretty standard, nothing crazy
