eclipse 3.7.1 fixes all FTBFS except on armel (and presumably also

According to [1] eclipse cannot be build on arm at the moment due to
lack of memory support for processes.  Such support requires linux 3.3
(or some cherry-picks[2] by the kernel maintainers) and after that, it
needs to be deployed on the buildds.

Furthermore, the latest build on armel fails with an "Unimplemented
opcode: 254 = <unknown>"[3].

In light of the above, I have decided to temporary request the removal
of eclipse/armel until it is buildable again.  I will keep #649912
open to track the eclipse/arm{el,hf} status.
