Data flow analysis with GCC Compiler

our research group needs a tool for data flow analysis. We would like to
use the front end of GCC. I have already seen that the file flow.c handles
the flow analysis but on register level.

Our desire is to find the data dependency of variable of a C program. What
do you think is better - use the flow algorithm as it is implemented for
the RTL code, or to implement the DFA our own at an earlier stage?

Thanks a lot
