Many thanks to Hugo Garcia for setting up the Solipse project to house our progress in creating a distributable build of Eclipse for solaris-gtk-x86. The scripts that I had previously posted on this blog have now been moved to the downloads area of the project site. We have successfully been able to build fully-functional Eclipse distributions (sans the internal browser and OpenGL support) from 3.3 to 3.4 on OpenSolaris and Nexenta, and our goal is currently to iron out the last details of the SWT browser component, OpenGL support and the p2 SDKProfile and to contribute the binaries back to eclipse to make the build official.
Thanks to everyone who sent suggestions and who found some use for the initial scripts, and please feel welcome on the Solipse community site!
