Not really, other than by editing and enhancing CC Mode's source files.
But it doesn't really make any sense to "customize" the syntactic symbols
list this sort of way - the syntactic symbols are all about indenting
code, so you'd have to extend the syntax recognition functions (chiefly
c-guess-basic-syntax) anyway.  Having gone through all that work, it's
trivial by comparison to add one or two syntactic symbols in the source
code.

Aren't there any suitable syntactic symbols already?

There's the CC Mode mailing list at <address@hidden>
