That's unfortunate. Of all CDT, the build system seems the most complex code 
to me, and if the knowledge about it is lost, this doubles the complexity.

Do you know what unique features CDT build system has relatively to other 
build systems out there? It looks like internal builder is more efficient than 
external build tool, because it can know what files were modified. But in 
other aspects, I know some options that seems comparable, or better.

Maybe, it would be best if CDT included integration for popular build systems,
with one of such integrations being "recommended" one?
