I see the same thing in the Windows version of Eclipse-CDT. I think this 
is because LLVM+clang relies heavily on TableGen generated files, which 
include #defines that the Eclipse just doesn't understand. Maybe setting 
the appropiate include dirs may solve some of them.

It would be awesome to hook up clang-index with eclipse but that's way 
beyond my capabilities.
