Plug-in Manifest Builder or in short, manifest builder is contributed by
PDE through org.eclipse.pde.core plug-in. This is the builder that
would compile your plug-in each you change plug-in dependencies, modify
build.properties, change classpath, add or remove libraries, save your
code/classes. It compiles the plug-in and validate that required files
(plugin.xml, etc) are in place and in correct shape.
The Plug-in Manifest Compiler preference page has a bunch of options that control the problem severity generated by the builder.
