Description of problem:
You cannot use the CDT to debug on x86_64. When you try to debug a
C/C++ program it switches to the debug perspective but none of the
debugging functionality, such as step, step over etc, is enabled. If
you look at the debug configurations dialog, it claims that there is
no debugger available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Checkout and build eclipse from the 64 bit Eclipse 2.1.2 branch
2.Create a very simple C/C++ project, or you could use one that
3.Try to debug the C/C++ project
Actual Results: Debug doesn't work, throws NPE.
Expected Results: Should be able to debug.
Additional info: Note that the CDT version is actually 1.2.1 not 1.0

I've checked in a fix for this and sent it upstream.
