Problems with Eclipse project generated by cmake


I noticed a recent conversation on the Eclipse CDT bugzilla
( regarding
problems with using the Eclipse project files generated by the command

cmake -G "Eclipse CDT4 - Ninja" ...

for llvm+clang repos.

I see similar problems when using Eclipse Photon + CDT and found the
above referenced bug report in my web search for solutions.

Can someone with experience in using Eclipse CDT for llvm/clang
development let me know if I should also consider using cmake4eclipse
plugin instead?
