A quick note to packages that build-depend on gccxml: 

gccxml does not support GCC 5.  Moreover, upstream development has stopped so 
there is no prospect that it ever will.

Fortunately, they have released a successor, castxml, that should generate 
gccxml-compatible output and be GCC 5 compatible.  Castxml is now in Debian 
Sid so you may want to adjust your package.

I believe you can make the replacement:

	gccxml input_file.cc -fxml=output_file.xml
to	castxml --castxml-gccxml input_file.cc -o output_file.xml
