Seems to be a dependency. As far as I investigated the port's Makefile,
gpatch should be fine, too. Instead of building the (g)patch utility,
you could surely use pkg_add -r (g)patch to install it.

I tried "make" in devel/patch and it seems to run well. Maybe you try
to install (even build) patch prior to a new "make" attempt for eclipse.

As far as I checked, pkg_add will provide 3.4.? only at the moment.

If it runs on FreeBSD, there should be no problem. If it's a Linux
binary, enable the Linux ABI which should make it run, too.
