What you need is OSPC (see web page below for details).
See www.knosof.co.uk/ospcnet.html for the log file produced by
running OSPC on the Netscape source code.
My experience si that approximately 30% of #included files, in mature
source code, are not needed.
MS Windows users might like to check out PC-lint, www.gimpel.com
ps. It runs a bit slower than your host compiler. So, roughly, however
long that takes, OSPC takes.
