Default Installing eclipse on FreeBSD 7

I have installed FreeBSD 7. I used portsnap to fetch extract and update all the ports, then did a pkgdb -F. After resolving all the dependencies, I installed gnome2, diablo jdk from the freebsd foundation and then tried to install eclipse from ports (make install clean) which completed succesfuly. When I try to start up eclipse I am getting a pop up window with this message:

JVM terminated. Exit code=1
-jar /usr/local/eclipse/startup.jar
-os freebsd
-ws gtk
-arch amd64
-launcher /usr/local/eclipse/eclipse
-name Eclipse
-showsplash 600
-exitdata 6000a
-vm /usr/local/bin/java
-jar /usr/local/eclipse/startup.jar

I found out that this might be a Java heap problem, so I modified the eclipse.ini file. The instructions were on this page:

under the heading:

How to set java heap size in Eclipse?

But this did not change the out come.
Any help or suggestions on how to correct this.
