Synopsis: gcc -V 2.95.x fails on comments and preprocessor directives

Not a bug. This is a consequence of the fact that the compiler driver expects cc1 (the actual C compiler) to have an integrated preprocessor, which is the case of GCC 3, but not of earlier releases. -V has never taken such major differences into account, and it probably never will. Better install each version of GCC with a different prefix.
