GCC has machinery to distinguish the timing for preprocessing from
that of parsing. I'm talking of parsing. Have a look at the various
push/pop TV_* in the source code.

There is no #using directive in C++.

yes; I'm NOT talking of those steps.


As a matter of fact, the preprocessor is quite fast (compared to other
industrial-strength ones).


GCC has a timing framework that makes it possible to gather detailed
enough statistics about various parts of the compiler.
