this is something the ISV's can fix up.
But then, there are also LOTS of CDT users who take the
verbatim free stuff off Eclipse.org -- lots of students,
or private programmers. While agree that Eclipse is a
famework for ISV's, I think that it's equally important

Also, remember that I've originally seen this problem when
trying to create a "CDT Standard Makefile project" which is
not necessarily related to GNU at all, so just fixing up the
GNU templates is not sufficient IMHO.
