quagga uses autoconf.  I have no idea if eclipse has a clue about
autoconf.  My experience with eclipse makes me have the opinion that it
is the worst piece of crap ever created as a piece of software.  Sure I
don't like IDEs to begin with, but even as far as IDEs go, it sure
is awful.

All you really need is a nice text editor and make.
