I have got Eclipse 2.1.3 working on OpenBSD using jdk13 and Redhat Motif
libraries under Linux emulation.
% pkg_info | grep -i linux
jdk-linux-1.3.1_10 Java Development Kit for Java 2 Standard Edition 1.3
redhat_base-8.0p4 Linux compatibility package based on RedHat 8.0
redhat_motif-2.1.30p0 Motif toolkit Linux libraries
% dmesg | head -1
OpenBSD 3.5 (Celeron466-RAID) #0: Sun Mar 21 16:05:47 EET 2004
And the Eclipse version was: eclipse-SDK-2.1.3-linux-motif.zip

Actually it is pretty much a drop-in if you have jdk-linux working.
Just download that zip-archive, uncompress it to some directory and
run it with command:
/path/to/eclipse -vm /usr/local/jdk1.3.1-linux/bin/java -vmargs -Xmx200M -Xms30M
With default resource limit settings Eclipse will run out of memory
very soon, so you need to raise your limits some.
Since my computer is only 466 MHz Celeron with 224 MB ram and Eclipse
runs very slowly on it, I have done only some basic HelloWorld testing,
but it seems to be stable.
