Possible to use mac os x JDK 1.6 port ( SoyLatte ) to launch eclipse?

For eclipse 3.3.1, the swt .jnilib's seem to be hiding in the 
plugins/org.eclipse.swt.carbon.macosx_3.3.2.v3347a.jar file.  I did the 
following to startup eclipse 3.3.1 on my mac:

/apps/eclipse-3.3.1 $ cd plugins/
/apps/eclipse-3.3.1/plugins $ mkdir swt-carbon-macosx
/apps/eclipse-3.3.1/plugins $ cd swt-carbon-macosx/
/apps/eclipse-3.3.1/plugins/swt-carbon-macosx $ jar -xf 
/apps/eclipse-3.3.1/plugins/swt-carbon-macosx $ cd ../..
/apps/eclipse-3.3.1 $ /opt/soylatte16-i386-r3/bin/java -Xmx1024m 
-cp plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.1.R33x_v20070828.jar 
org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.Main -os macosx -ws carbon -arch x86 -clean 
-debug  --launcher.library 
-startup  plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.1.R33x_v20070828.jar 
-vm /opt/soylatte16-i386-r3/bin/java -keyring ./.eclipse_keyring 
-consoleLog -showlocation

Eclipse then popped right up!
