I found installing the Android SDK within Eclipse is much more pleasant, especially when your developing alone. No need for AUR and chmod orgies.
Open up Eclipse, go to Help - Install new Software - Add...
and choose "Developer Tools"
In my case everything was installed to
~/Development/android-sdks (of course the installer lets you choose any directory that suits you best)
After that, close eclipse,
cd ~/Development/android-sdks/tools and fire up the Android SDK Manager ./android sdk
to get additional libs and the latest updates (don't miss this step)
You can now create a new Android project in Eclipse and everything works fine!
