I've also now got the target builds being done from inside Eclipse, so I can
build all variants with one click.

1. Get both target and simulator builds working at command line (in Cygwin
on Windows).

2. Make sure that you also have gdb setup and working from command-line.

3. You need to have a Java runtime environment installed, so if you haven't
already got a fairly recent Java JRE or SDK, get a 1.4.1_01 or later of the
JRE from, or get the SDK if you don't mind a bigger
download. It's J2SE (standard edition) you are looking for, not J2EE or

4. Get yourself Eclipse (latest released version 2.1.something) from plus the C/C++ plugin from
