I'm guessing that the path discovery result was not accurate, as the initial build produced close to 600 errors stemming from inclusion of the iostream header, which couldn't locate a large number of system-defined symbols/classes.
I've rebuilt the index repeatedly, after adding various system directories to the include directories via the Project Properties dialog.
At this point, I'm going to create a new VM, and add as little as possible to it before doing a test build of CDT. This is because I ended up with both 4.4.4 and 4.4.6 versions of the c++ include directories, and the 4.4.6 is nothing more than a soft link to the 4.4.4 version... which makes me wonder about the relative paths that I find in the .sc file. (Relative paths including '..' don't play well with soft links.)
The reason I'm going to try this is that I added a number of packages that I prefer to work with, and one of those might have been the reason the soft link was added. If I get solid information from this experiment on what's wrong with the environment, I'll try fixing my existing VM as a proof that I've got the right root cause identification.
I'll update this thread once I have the results of that experiment. I am intending to join the contributor list for CDT anyway, so perhaps I'll be in the position of reporting a bug and resolving it myself.
