I was able to strip that down to this:

  template <bool> struct A {};
  template <class T> struct B { int x; };
  template <class T> struct C {
    static int const x = sizeof(A<(__builtin_offsetof(B<T>, x) == 0)>);

Does that reproduce the ICE for you?

If you add the --print option you will see the command line options
used by the gccxml front-end to run gccxml_cc1plus which is the
tool actually crashing.  If you build it debug then you can run
it all in gdb.
