Anyone using eclipse CDT?
When I start to compile something, I get the following error in the shell from
which eclipse was started:

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no spawner in java.library.path
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(
at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(
at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(
at org.eclipse.cdt.utils.spawner.ProcessFactory.<init>(
at org.eclipse.cdt.utils.spawner.ProcessFactory.getFactory(
at org.eclipse.cdt.core.CommandLauncher.execute(

The last class (ProcessFactory) is in

Anyone know what the missing piece / magic is?

(The compile *seems* to work, reporting errors, responding to corrections, etc.,
but I'm pointing at a port and it's not working yet)

9.1 RELEASE, ports updated a day or two ago.
