That is not possible.  The patch that performs the dump is specifically
integrated with the source code of GCC that relates to C++ compilation.
One would need to develop a brand new patch against the C99 compilation

There is no active development for that.  Our design goal is for C++98
support only.

I suggest looking at Clang:


It's an open-source compiler designed as part of a modular toolchain
infrastructure (LLVM).  You can probably base source analysis tools
off of that.
