configuring eclipse for graal

I am trying to get Graal set up in Eclipse so that I can build and single step through the code.

Following the instructions in I ran "mx ideinit".
However, I don't see  a .project file generated in the top directory. I created a new Eclipse project and imported all the directories at the top level, but the integration wasn't as seamless as I expected.

For example, I get several errors like:

AMD64FloatRegisters cannot be resolved (
Cannot make a static reference to the non-static field Tester_Class  (
many_loader cannot be resolved to a type  (

It looks like I may have to configure Eclipse to pick up on dependencies that have been manually specified in the mx/projects file.
Can someone explain the proper way to configure the Eclipse environment? I looked around for additional documentation but the above link was all I found.
