No offense, but might I suggest amending the patch so as not to break 
Linux compatibility?  If there's hope of getting FreeBSD consideration 
(even partially) into the release build, I think it would be more 
politically correct for the patches to merge cleanly and safely with the 
existing source tree.

Obviously this doesn't just apply to this patch in particular, but it 
did remind of the fact.

This shouldn't have any bearing on the addition to the ports tree, but 
does come back to the "making this easier in the future" thing.

Is anyone up for presenting this work to the Eclipse team?  Are Ken and 
Dan (and anyone else with a hand in this) happy for their work to be
