An alternative to conditional preprocessor directives is to use
BOOST_PP_IF() and BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF() to select between workarounds. This
might help in some cases.

It should not be very difficult to write a lexer for C++. Once the lexer is
done, it should be trivial to create a program to compare two C++ source
files. For verification purposes, a complete lexer is probably not
necessary. A program that would simply remove all white space and lines
starting with a # might be good enough (but it does not catch all errors).
