Welcome to your worst nightmare! I have not been able to track down a
yacc-able grammar for 2 years. The one you mentioned about is very old
and would need a substantial amount of work to include templates.
There is a neat C++ grammar that is written in C/C++, hence portable
to any platform with a C/C++ compiler.
An in depth discussion currently underway about its update and
bugfixes. For your, purpose it should suffice. Check out
'comp.compiler.tools.pccts' and join the fun.
