i'll take a look ...

so it works for me if i export the internal scanner package and then
just refer to all the gcc things directly.  but i'm using a gcc-based
toolchain, so all the hardwork has been done for me already.  i could
also copy & paste the internal scanner files into my local plugin, but
that sucks too ... only slightly less in that i'll still be able to
distribute my plugin without requiring CDT modifications.

ive posted what minor fixes i can, but i'm far from a java or eclipse
guy.  the work i'm doing atm is merely due to lack of a real java or
eclipse guy availability.  hopefully things will be rectified down the
line, and then i can bug that guy to fix things right ;).
