Walter, why don't you use makeheaders?
http://www.hwaci.com/sw/mkhdr/

It is a lightweight fast program, which eliminates the need of total.h 
and reduces recompile time drastically. Besides, it makes life easier by 
not having a need to consider #include salad - it simply makes all 
public declarations available to a set of C files, pre-sorted! Try it 
out. It should compile and work on every 32-bit ANSI C system. So far I 
have made very good experiences with it. The only adverse effect was, it 
has hidden the source of a couple of declaration mismatches, that is it 
was clear what the problem is at once, but you have to grep to find 
where the false declaration source is. A very minor problem if grep is 
inegrated into the IDE.

It also appears that the guys have also written a BISON replacement 
which is much faster and supports LALR grammars.

I think it requieres makeheaders, but I guess it can be changed easily.

The source is tiny, well-commented and legible, not overbloated and 
seems to be OK. I made minor changes to makeheadres and they appeared to 
be easy. They have also written a number of other interesting things.

Well, maybe writing another compiler for a better language fixing a 
necessity in loads of tools used in C and C++ is a more sane decision. 
Altogether with making everything better.

BTW, the absence of comments in your code sucks! I'm not very fond of 
reading code.
