I think that at the moment nobody know how that works or if it works at all.
However, I remember having seen a blog post by about building mozilla 
with eclipse.  It involved a lot of tweaking of eclipse's parameters 
like enlarging the amount of memory to the JVM and fiddling with CDT's 
parameters for scanning C++ files.  I will try to find the link but that 
may take some days.

The general steps would be:

- Create a new (C++) project from the SVN repository.

- Let eclipse download the source code.

- Let CDT scan all C/C++ source files.

- Wrap AOO's build command into an Ant file.

- Hit the button to build AOO

I guess that wrapping the build command into an Ant file is the hardest
