I'm running Eclipse 3.3 on FreeBSD 7/i386 without any problems. I'm using
subclipse (not from ports). The project I'm working on has more than
900000 lines of code and things like refactoring run very well.
I'm not sure if my eclipse runs on java 5 or 6. I have them both
installed. Java -version gives me 1.5. I wil use 1.6 tomorrow.

Maybe eclipse on amd64 runs different. Eclipse has native c(++) parts.
