I've been able to finally built eclipse with IBM JDK but had to modify a
lot of build.xml (and buildDoc.xml). I don't know if it's ant in debian
that is broken or if it's IBM JDK that has serious bugs (javadoc, and
other stuff) on powerpc but it was not that easy.

I already built native swt stuff, but I don't have a launcher: the
'eclipse' native application.

I'll investigate that today...
