My two minute solution (just now) was to drop the SWT JNI libraries  
in the java.library.path manually. Eclipse seems to be running fine.
I couldn't find the original SWT binaries in the eclipse installation  
tree -- does eclipse extract them from a jar?

Also, SoyLatte R2 only supports shared libraries with the  
standard .dylib extension. R3 added a fall-back to Apple's .jnilib.
