I guess it would depend on the purpose of the nightly build. I have set 
them up so that as soon as a stable Eclipse integration/milestone build 
releases, we have a CDT build that can be used with them. This is what our 
testers and internal clients use.

If you need to run new CDT bits against old Eclipse bits, you can always 
run out of CVS or even run the build scripts yourselves (hmm, I should 
finish that readme...)
