I've got it working fine now. I think the eclipse port may have a lot more issues than the eclipse-devel port. There was one bug in eclipse-devel which I tested the patches for from the maintainer, but iirc he's got them in the ports tree now. You may want to try that one and see how it works - I know you'll need jdk16.

I even hacked the other plugin ports to work with it, since it installs to /usr/local/eclipse-devel (so you must create a symlink to it from /usr/local/eclipse for the other plugin ports to install.) I also got subclipse installed just fine externally, since there isn't even a port for that.
