    labs/buildroot-appdev: drop section on Eclipse
    The Eclipse plugin is essentially unmaintained, and only available for
    very old Eclipse versions. It no longer makes sense to use it.

 As you can see you can now develop your applications and libraries,
 using your normal version control system and relying on Buildroot to
 do all the configure, build and install steps for you.

-Follow the instructions at
-to install the Buildroot plugin.
-Once the Buildroot plugin is installed, we need to adjust our Buildroot configuration so that it works properly with Eclipse:
-\item We need to tell Buildroot to generate a small configuration file
-  to let Eclipse know which toolchains are available. To do this, run
-  the Buildroot \code{menuconfig}, and in the \code{Toolchain} menu,
-  enable the option \code{Register toolchain within Eclipse Buildroot
-    plug-in}.
-\item We need to have a SFTP server, which Eclipse will use to upload
-  application binaries. The most lightweight option is to enable
-  \code{gesftpserver} in Buildroot.
-Run Buildroot's \code{make} command. After this, you should have a
-\code{$HOME/.buildroot-eclipse-toolchains} file. Reflash your system
-which now has {\em gesftpserver}, and also restart Eclipse.
-Then, follow the instructions at
-to create a new C project, and then the instructions at
-to run your application on the target.
