Thanks for your report. This is quite strange, as the plugin is working
for us. The only checks that Eclipse is doing is to verify that the
compiler path points to an existing file.

Could you give us your Buildroot .config, the generated
~/.buildroot-eclipse.toolchains, and verify by yourself that the
compiler pointed by ~/.buildroot-eclipse.toolchains indeed exists?

I suppose you've verified that you don't see the Buildroot toolchain
when trying to create a C Executable project, as shown in
https://raw.github.com/mbats/eclipse-buildroot-bundle/master/doc/images/eclipse_new_project_toolchain.png ?
