eclipse, netbeans, android-sdk and a few other development environments come
with their own maintenance environments. If you install them into /usr/ they
might cause some trouble (but this is most unlikely)

If you install them into ~/ (where just you can use them) or /usr/local/
(where all users can use them), then you are almost certain to not cause any
problems whatsoever.

There is no need to try to fool portage in any way. All you are doing is the
exact same principle as using Firefox to manage it's own plugins and
extensions, just on a larger scale. This is why you got no responses on that
matter - you are concerned about problem that does not exist.

Marcus Wanner
Default eclipse portage package

Several comments about answers here. First, to Marcus Wanner, yes, the

two eclipse packages work for 3.5, but they AREN'T eclipse, they are plugins for
eclipse (plugins for what I really want). The 3rd is eclipse-sdk, the only one
you don't cover and the only one I really need. Of course I know how to handle
them, but without having eclipse itself, it's not useful.

In that case, you would follow my instructions, except change the
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -pv eclipse-ecj
command to
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -pv eclipse-sdk
and the
emerge -av eclipse-ecj
command to
emerge -av eclipse-sdk

However, if you have it working, you can disregard my advice entirely.
