Officially gcc-2.7.2 does not support DU4.0 yet, but I fear even if
the next version of gcc does officially support it, there will be no
differences in the predefined symbols. Certainly at this moment there
is no difference, nor is there any version-indication:

   nu[102]hooft% /nu1/hooft/lib/gcc-lib/alpha-dec-osf4.0/2.7.2.f.1/cpp -dM /dev/null
   #define SYSTYPE_BSD 1 
   #define _LONGLONG 1 
   #define __alpha__ 1 
   #define __osf__ 1 
   #define _SYSTYPE_BSD 1 
   #define __alpha 1 
   #define unix 1 

"uname -a" does the trick, but that is an ugly test...

   alpha1[101]hooft% uname -a
   OSF1 alpha1.embl-heidelberg.de V3.2 148 alpha
   nu[103]hooft% uname -a
   OSF1 nu.embl-heidelberg.de V4.0 386 alpha

Do you have any other hints?
