/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2/include/stddef.h:201: syntax error before

Expected Results:  a clean make!

Cannot reproduce (and stddef.h has not changed BTW).
Do you see it even with say
echo '#include <stddef.h>' | gcc -c -xc - -o /tmp/test.o
If not, can you post what is the minimal way you are able to reproduce it with?
Also, -dD dump would be very useful.
