That looks good so far and matches what we have (we also patch org.eclipse.cdt.platform for org.eclipse.cdt.managedbuilder.core (and a few more)).

If I remember correctly that message indicates a version mismatch. Have you double-checked that the Eclipse you're trying to install this into has org.eclipse.cdt.platform installed?

(Note that there are certain bugs related to generating proper version requirements in the feature patch export procedure, but they shouldn't be related to your problem:
I have built the patches posted there into a feature patch "p2 Eclipse Publisher Bugfix" in update site (no guarantees about continued availability, this is an internal thing) and generally use that to build our product.
If in doubt, examine the content.xml inside content.jar of your exported repository for what requirements were actually generated.)
