actually, eclipse *is* out of date:
   java/eclipse: 3.6.2
   java/eclipse-devel: 3.7.0
while the latest stable is 3.7.2.

3.7.1 was the first eclipse supporting Java 7 syntax.
Since I need it (I collaborate on some Java 7 projects)
I run it on a Linux virtual machine.

I tried to update the port but failed and now I'm short
of time. Is anybody working on the port? A week or two
ago I asked on freebsd-eclipse@ but no response.
