[cdt-dev] Installation of cdt-master: missing dependencies hard to determine

I just installed Eclipse SDK 3.4 RC3 and attempted to install cdt-master on top of that, via update manager.

Previously I meant to complain (altho it's probably a platform thing) that the dependencies are hard to debug in this.
In 3.3, if there was a missing dependency, there is a red 'X' right next to it, and deselecting it allows the install to proceed.
Mylin does this for me. I don't have it in this test build, and i like to walk thru the install and how it handles dependencies, especially missing ones, anyway.
3.4 RC1 and prior Doesn't show a red X and you have to read a bunch of rather cryptic text to figure out that the Mylin dependency is not there.
Deselecting the CDT myline bridge then allows installation of CDT to proceed.

In the install I just did, besides alot of things showing up twice (i think it did that last week late, too)
I'm getting all sorts of dependencies missing, can't figure out what they are, but somehow it allowed me to continue the install,
altho I don't feel all warm and fuzzy about it.

Is there another way I should be doing this?
Is there another place to track this problem?
