My suggestion is to have the needed files for RCP in a local maven
repository in the project to be sure to have them.
Having a script building/updating the local repository from a RCP
download (not stored in svn). This gives an initial work to download the
RCPs for the different platforms and run the script to create the repo
with the needed eclipse artifacts.
The eclipse artifacts are still in svn stored, but you never now when
Eclipse will deploy its artifacts. Whenever a newer version of RCP is
available you can download it, run the script and your fine with the
dependencies for this.
