-w is supposed to do that

Yes, the tools from diagnostic{-core,}.h are usable from all frontends.
The location_t is a libcpp thing but it's the location how it is tracked
through the middle-end and also for debug information generation
so you might want to at least emulate that even when you are not
using the preprocessor.  The important part is to manage a line-map
