It appears the package can be built without eclipse-jdt and eclipse-rcp.
Works with cowbuilder at least. We probably exclude the eclipse classes
in debian/bootstrap.xml anyway. I'm not exactly sure how the BND Eclipse
plugin is supposed to work because I see we also symlink various jars
into Eclipse specific directories in debian/rules.

I believe it would be possible to drop the build-dependencies on
eclipse-jdt and eclipse-rcp. We would lose the BND Eclipse plugin but
the rest should still continue to work.
