I've had the same problem. The good part is that the problem went away,
but the sad part is, that I don't know what solved it. Can you update all
your ports and than reinstall eclipse?
The fun thing is, that I didn't have the problem with the eclipse-devel
port, but only the eclipse port, while those ports where practicly
identical at some point in time a couple of weeks ago.
What version of the port is installed exactly? I have these:
$ ls -d /var/db/pkg/eclipse-*
