You may want to look at LXR (http://lxr.linux.no) -- Although
it was specifically written for the Linux kernel:
 - It's in perl, so it's easy to customize.
 - Handle pretty big source trees -- The current kernel is
   ~7K *.h files and ~7K *.c files.
 - Has no C++ support (AFAIK).

The source itself is hosted somewhere on sourceforge.
