The following script was extracted from another blog posting about compiling Eclipse 3.3 for Nexenta (solaris-gtk-x86). I have separated it out and modified the original post because most of the steps for figuring-out dependencies are valid for building Eclipse 3.4M4 and building Eclipse 3.4M5, but the build itself is slightly different.
I have used this script to build Eclipse 3.3 for myself, have since programmed a bit with my version so I know it has worked for my basic needs and would be curious to know if anyone else has gotten any use out of it.
The script itself makes extensive use of the simple command-line find-and-replace syntax I wrote about here.
You should be able to drop the script into a directory that contains the eclipse-sourceBuild-srcIncluded-3.3.zip, execute it, and it will decompress the archive, modify the build scripts to support nexenta with gtk on x86, and create a distibutable file in the result directory.
The script can now be downloaded from the solipse downloads page. Be aware of the Nexenta-specific configurations for compiling the SWT libraries.
