Just to add another opinion:
For my personal purposes changing that in top-level build.xml was necessary.
As I compiled Eclipse with the 1.6 JDK anyway I did not do any of the other
modifications and it worked for me.
The reason for this is that I am working on a Eclipse RCP application that
has to be Java 1.5 compatible (that particular application actually does
not even compile cleanly with a 1.6 JDK but needs Eclipse 3.3 (and as I am
not the only developer I can't fix that)).
Seemingly the "official" pre-compiled versions from eclipse.org (for Linux
or Windows) have a similar change applied as you can run them using a 1.5
JDK without any problems.
So personally I would prefer to have this integrated into the port.
