sure, but the point here is not specifically the LLVM plug-in.

I think the CDT is not robust enough to cope with projects having configurations referring to objects from missing plug-ins. the expected behaviour would be to mark those configurations somehow unusable and do not use them at all.

the actual behaviour ranges from ignoring the entire project content, permanently damaging the configuration, opening settings windows without content, etc.

I bet there was.

there might be some quick fixes, but to me it seems a wider problem that probably requires a very good understanding of the code, not only small local patches.

perhaps you could consider this robustness for the new build system.
