Here's what I've found: the problem happens in this trivial program, too:

#include <signal.h>

int PC;

$ gcc -c error: expected unqualified-id before numeric constant error: expected `,' or `;' before numeric constant
$ gcc -E |tail -1
int 14;

<sys/signal.h> includes <sys/ucontext.h> iff _XPG4_2.  This is defined by
<sys/feature_tests.h> for _XOPEN_SOURCE=500, which g++ predefines.  The
rest of the include chain is
<sys/regset.h> -> <sys/reg.h> -> <ia32/sys/reg.h>.

Defining PC there is controlled by __EXTENSIONS__, which g++ predefines as
well.  So it seems we are out of luck: we get the namespace pollution we
asked for ;-(
