Well, I have a natively compiled eclipse sdk 3.4.1 (not the ganymede 
but the source dist of 3.4) with jdk 1.6.0 here. I haven't compiled the swt's
yet but it's obviously (trusting ktruss) the only thing lacking from having it
working. If you have another week of patience, we might see what comes out of
it (sick atm, not working on it at home, so monday is earliest for trying and
compile the native swt gtk libs).

The good news so far is, it only requires "trivial" modifications to the
source package of eclipse (trivial as soon as you find out what's wrong).
I think building jdk15 to build jdk16 from wip was harder than building
eclipse. I'll see which monsters hide behind the next turn (building the
native GTK SWT). I expect some. The idea behind my doing is to provide a
patchset for a more recent eclipse to someone who is savvy in creating
packages. Maybe this someone then can create a native wip/eclipse34 or 
whatever. Alternatively I can give the compiled i386 beast to whoever
trusts me. But let's wait and see if I succeed first...
