yes downloading the source code and building that in Eclipse will be good
choice for that you need to have maven installed and configured on your
machine . Once you are done you can simply configure the mahout
distribution in you class path to use the classes of mahout and create your
own project to proceed with examples .

you also would need hadoop distribution for compilation of the mahout
source code.

Cheers :)
