It is not running.  The build finishes, but it is not complete, about 
30 MB short.  The nice thing with eclipse, is that you can build for a 
different platform.  Than means, you can cross-compile from linux to 
get a ppc version running.   Now that I say that, I might give it 
another try.  I was trying to compile it on Linux/ppc using kaffe and 
it was incomplete.  After that, you will need the native stuff for SWT.
