Perhaps /usr/share/eclipse.  But be careful not to delete files in
/usr/lib/eclipse, /usr/share/eclipse (or /usr/lib64/eclipse) that aren't
owned by a package that is built by the eclipse SRPM (ie. eclipse-*).

I don't have the bug # on hand, but it's an issue whereby things put
into the "dropins" folder don't get refreshed properly when they are
removed and then re-added (like what happens with an rpm upgrade).  I
haven't run into this myself for a while and I add and remove plugins
all the time.
