Here's the issue: I'm building two features. Let's call them feature ABC
and XYZ. When I build ABC on a Linux box using configs = *, *, * they
don't generate/build the OS-specific plugins (specifically I have win32
specific plugins). So I set ABC to explicitly build for win32, macosx,
linux. Now it builds the win32 plugins, great.

Feature XYZ is built separately. It is supposed to include Feature ABC for
ease of versioning and distribution. So when I build XYZ I take an eclipse
3.4.1 w/ the Delta pack and install ABC into it using the p2 director.
But, now that I generate win32 specific plugins, they won't get installed
(the build is on Linux), so the build of XYZ fails because it can't locate
the win32 plugins it needs to package for inclusion.

I've tried also just copying the set of pre-built plugin/feature JARs into
the eclipse 3.4.1 build host's features/plugins directories, or into the
dropins folder. No dice.

How can I build Feature ABC such that it generates OS-specific plugins;
and then build Feature XYZ separately so that it generates its own
OS-specific plugins, and includes all the pre-built binaries from the
build of ABC?
