Never mind, answered my own question... I just make a new maven project and add a dependency to the pom.xml, I checked in ~/.m2 that the hadoop-client module is there.

If I am running from built code that was installed with mvn install Do I need to change the pom.xml file to reflect that I am using local repository?

If your goal is to simply build an application, then you can use a Maven project. Why do you require the whole of Hadoop's projects itself on Eclipse when you can simply have the dependencies via a maven pom.xml?
The following is what you can use in a simple maven app, to include all necessary dependencies automatically, for example:
Then importing this project into Eclipse (using m2e plugin) would be equivalent to "Adding all relevant Hadoop JARs to Eclipse".
