To get vim to work with mlcscope I had to apply the following patch:

--- vim-7.0.122-1/src/if_cscope.c       2006-08-30 15:40:59.001000000 -0400
+++ if_cscope.c 2006-10-19 12:07:19.921445600 -0400
@@ -630,7 +630,7 @@
        if ((stok = strtok(buf, (const char *)" ")) == NULL)
-       if (strcmp((const char *)stok, "cscope:"))
+       if (strstr((const char *)stok, "cscope:")== NULL)

        if ((stok = strtok(NULL, (const char *)" ")) == NULL)

This should allow cscope or mlcscope to work properly.  Don't forget to compile the cscope interface: via the --enable-cscope or --with-features=huge.

The following needs to be added to your .vimrc file:
set csprg=/usr/bin/mlcscope

As some have pointed out you can rename the mlcscope program to cscope and its output will be compatible with vim.
