difference between android reference library and java build path dependency

Not sure if this is properly an Android question or an Eclipse question...
So I'm wrestling with trying to understand an inherited Android project in Eclipse. I'm an IntelliJ user, so be gentle.
In a project's Properties, I see two places where I can add libs that the project depends on:
1) Android --> Library. So the Library checkbox indicates that this project is/isn't a library. Then there's the list of projects that this project references as libraries.
Build Path --> Projects. Here I can add "Required projects on the build path".
So what's the difference between the two? My first guess it that #2 is just normal Java compilation classpath stuff and #1 is what to bundle up inside the .apk file. Am I close?
It is sorta covered in the
