I just got reminded today that Eclipse is working on changing their
build system to something based on Maven (for better or for worse).
Notably, LinuxTools upstream have closed a lot of their outstanding
bugs around their build scripts as WONTFIX because of this. So it is
entirely possible that pde-build will be retired in Eclipse 4 and most
of my knowledge here is obsolete... :)
