I create a p2 repo using the eclipse-feature packaging type and
deployableFeature option, and add the resulting directory to my PDE
target platform. Or, I install it into an Eclipse installation, and
set my target platform to point to the result. It's probably not the
best way to do it, but it's the way I settled on some time ago.

You might be interested in these projects:

p2-maven-plugin creates a p2 repository for dependencies which don't
have a p2 repo already.

pde-target-maven-plugin adds dependencies in your local repo to your
pde target platform.

I haven't used either, so can't say much about them.
