I think the word "analysis" may be conflated here.

Static analysis (for bug-finding) for C++ is currently not supported in Xcode.  The build system will literally not invoke the static analyzer for C++/Objective-C++ files.

C++ code completion powered by Clang is supported in Xcode 4.  That's an unrelated feature.
