The project compiles, but I can't seem to work out how to get the libraries into the deployment,
so it fails at export. Is there something I should be doing with IvyDE or with Ivy straight?

You need to make IvyDE retrieve the jars into your project, in some lib folder for instance.
Then edit your plugin configuration, go in the "Runtime" tab and manually add in the "Classpath"
the jar which has been retrieved by IvyDE.

It doesn't seems there is a more automated way of handling this. The jar names have to be
declared in the MANIFEST.MF and the, and the PDE is requiring that you specify
them by hand.
