Not at this point. Even though it _should_ work (after all, it's Java), SOPC
Builder needs to connect to a Quartus server socket to query the current
project. As Quartus under Linux has no such socket open, at the moment I
can't think of a way to do this.
I did ask around and SOPC Builder should be included in the 3.0 Linux
package, with of course the NIOS being available for Linux as well.
