That probably explains it then. By default eclipse (and other ports) 
expects to find mozilla. If you prefer say mozilla-devel you should set 
WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel. The bug is that the following code does not 
work in your case:

BUILD_DEPENDS+=	mozilla:${PORTSDIR}/www/mozilla

Since you have mozilla-devel, I suppose you get a mozilla binary in your 
PATH right?

Try WITH_MOZILLA=mozilla-devel instead.
