Try running without the --gccxml-cxxflags option.  This option is to be 
used when specifying what compiler to simulate (like -LANG:std for 
MIPSpro).  If you pass -D and -I options they will automatically be used 
by the parser.  Try this command line:

gccxml --gccxml-compiler g++ -D_REENTRANT -D__linux__ -D__redHat9__ 
-D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS -I. -I../vrfVrlinkExt/libsrc/vrfExtProtocol 
-I../VR-Link/include -I../terrainToolkit/libsrc/terrainCS 
-I../terrainToolkit/libsrc/gdb -I../terrainToolkit/libsrc/geometry 
-I../terrainToolkit/libsrc/geometryNative -I../zlib dtedInc.h 

If this does not work, please send me the prepocessed output privately 
instead of posting it to the list to avoid the inbox problems you mentioned.
