Attached patch properly sets mozilla dependency via USE_GECKO. It also
corrects some issues which will cause a build to fail if mozilla is not installed.
Currently only firefox and mozilla are listed as supported. I also corrected the
icon installation. It will potentially fail because the directory it is installing to may
not exist in some circumstances.
Could someone please test that the build still works when WITHOUT_MOZILLA is
set? Else I'll do it when I have a clkean jail. Thanks.

I have a few modifications to add/change on this patch. I will upload a
new diff when I have finished testing it.

Here is the modified eclipse patch. Please commit it when able.
Since this patch has not been committed yet I have updated it again. I
set the default build to use xulrunner instead of mozilla or firefox as
this version of the eclipse port will now work with the internal web
browser when compiling against xulrunner. Please commit this patch file
instead of the previous patch files uploaded.
I discussed using xulrunner as the default GECKO with another committer
and we both felt that firefox should remain the default. The reason is
users will most likely have firefox installed or will want it installed.
Setting the default to xulrunner will make that the dependency required
by the package and in more cases than not bring in an extra package for
users. We felt that while support xulrunner is good, it shouldn't be
the default used by the package. With that in mind what do you think?
I'll commit it which ever way you think is best. I just wanted to bring
this issue up first. Thanks.
Does the latest diff work on amd64 too?
I choose xulrunner as the default because it is the only one that
currently works completely. Compiling against firefox will not enable
the internal browser which affects web development using eclipse and
also affects plugins for web development like MyEclipse. When I get past
the amd64 problem with xulrunner I plan to start looking into firefox
again. If I can get firefox working I would be more than happy with
setting is as the default, but right now I would assume that it would be
best to make the default xulrunner since it is currently the only option
that enables the full use of eclipse.
Patch-3.diff will not fix the internal browser on amd64, just x86.
With patch-3.diff applied on amd64 you will have to use "make
WITHOUT_MOZILLA=yes" and will be forced to use the external browser. I
have located where the problem is for amd64 in the source code but I am
not yet sure why it is happening or how to fix it. I am still working on
I'm about to commit a similar update to OpenBSD's eclipse port.
I found the amd64 build problem. It was that the build by default
uses the prebuilt swttools.jar in the distfile so some of the
changes like XPCOM.properties were not effective. You need to
apply this patch too:
Also, I'd recommend using NS_InitXPCOM2 instead of NS_InitXPCOM3.
It is the older init function. I'm not sure when NS_InitXPCOM3
was added, but its not included in the old mozilla suite.
Also the linux guys missed patching this file too:
Hope that helps somewhat.
Thanks Kurt for the patch. I added it to the eclipse port and tested it my
amd64 box. Seems to be working ok. I will create a new diff tomorrow and
attach it to this PR. The previous patch files might fail to apply now as a
patch has been committed for the Xbase11 issues. The new patch file I make
tomorrow will take that into account.

- Fixes for internal web browser 
- Fixes for internal web browser on amd64 
- Convert to USE_GECKO 
Note: Port defaults to xulrunner as the preffered gecko port because it is
the only port which allows the internal web browser to work but eclipse will
build using other gecko ports (ie. firefox, mozilla, seamonkey) though it
will lack a working internal web browser. An argument can be made that
xulrunner should be the only available gecko but maybe 5 people have
xulrunner installed and it's another 45 minute mozilla dependency on even my
speedy machine. The maintainer mentioned working on getting the internal
web browser to work with firefox so I'm leaving well enough alone. When
eclipse fully works with firefox the USE_GECKO ordering should probably be
