Why using a build tool, to create Eclipse projects files, which are only created once? When you are working in a distributed team, with multiple developers on different platforms (like Linux, Windows or Mac OS X), you want them to create their own Eclipse project files, in their environment – and you don’t want these files to be shared in your version control system. But you really want, that the use the same folder and project structure, with the same external libs (in maybe different locations).
It could also make sense, to recreate the project files, when you’ve added some new libs to your project – which you not want to share via your VCS system.
