Michael Geddes
script type
Provides highlighting for  #ifdef  #ifndef  #else  #endif  blocks, with the ability to mark a symbol as defined or undefined.
Handles nesting of #ifdefs (and #if) as well, but does not handle  #if defined().

Supports vim_ifdef:  modelines and .defines (_defines for win16/win32s) files to specify defined/undefined symbols.

use :Define <keyword>  or  :Undefine <keyword>     to dynamically specify defined or undefined sections.
install details
Place in syntax/ directory within your runtime path.

Can be invoked by appending .ifdef to your syntax.
eg with a modeline   vim: syntax=c.ifdef

Alternatively, call from a syntax file after/syntax/c.vim (or cpp.vim or idl.vim)
