Yes this is correct. I was using it as a way to debug the i386 PC BSP on
Windows and it worked well.

The documentation is a start and I have done building the kernel. I
provided it to be complete and to see if it could be done without
plugins which grow old and break.

I have not looked at applications created with Eclipse. It would be good
to have something documented.
