generally, running mx ideinit (or mx eclipseinit) is enough to set up all .project files you need. There is no .project file in the top-level directory; they are some levels below (in the graal/ directories, one per project).

You do not need to create an Eclipse project and import other projects into that. Please do this:
* clone the Graal repository into, say, ~/graal
* start Eclipse and choose that directory as the workspace
* File -> Import ... -> Mercurial -> Projects from local repository
* select the ~/graal directory
* select all projects that appear

... that should do it.
