Ignore whitespace is an option you can set in two places. There is a
toolbar button to do it on the fly while in the editor and then you
can also set it in preferences under General > Compare Patch.

The difference with diff and edit conflicts is that the latter is just
an option we have implemented where we can do pretty much anything we
want. The Compare options are all built on the Eclipse compare
framework (which involves more than the final editor) and there is
just no way to insert an external editor in the process. This really
ought to be an enhancement for the Eclipse compare framework. It'd be
cool if you could just define compare editors by filetypes and just
let the framework do the right thing. Then every tool would get this
capability.
