The Watcom demo is for a real mode x86 port.  You might be able to fudge the Watcom compiler into Eclipse, but I doubt it would be worth the effort.

The Win32 simulator port is provided in two versions.  The first uses the free MS Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition.  The second uses Eclipse with GCC (MingW to be precise).
