For yet another alternative:

[steven@spc9 steven]$ cat -n hello.c
1 #if 0
2 /* This won't break anything */
3 #include <bogus.h>
4 #endif
5
6 #if 0
7 * This won't compile
8 #include <missing.h>
9 #endif
10
11 #include <stdio.h>
12 int main()
13 {
14 printf("Hello world!\n");
15 }
[steven@spc9 steven]$ cc -c hello.c
