Hm, strange, before gnome upgrade I have updated all ports, and I think
I've rebuilt eclipse month or two ago. All was ok.

Also I has both 1.4.2 and 1.5.0 jdk installed. And I've use 1.5.0 jdk
for eclipse for long time. No ideas how it is related to jdk version.
(both jdk and eclipse does not changed during my transition gnome-2.10
-> gnome-2.12). 
The only difference - glib* and gdk* (and other gnome staff) was
upgraded and old libraries was preserved in compat directories.

Just tried with jdk-1.4.2 and jdk-1.5.0 - no difference.
