Be more specific, a cherry pick will just grab the changes from a commit and tries to apply them to yours...

Yep :). It can handle it ok. Just takes a while to rebuild sometimes.

Also be sure to follow those instructions exactly. They work just the same for CM7.

Are you building the AOSP ROM from source? If not, then that article may not be relevant to you...

Otherwise, it just says to run make so all the proper R(esource) files will be generated and so eclipse won't show any errors

One of the things you have to remember is that just because you cherry pick one commit into something like f/b, you might need support commits into settings apk, or something like that.
Also, did the cherrypick cleanly merge in? Sometimes whitespace will cause issues, and if you had to edit the file to make the code merge you may have missed something.

In all what I am trying to say, is that cherrypick may have gone south, and it could be something left over bad not letting you compile. (for instance a missing } or ; ) So if you can pastebin the error we can figure out more.
Lastly you have to remember that some of those commits may have been since changed in the actual repo to work better with newer updates etc. It helps to look at the history of one or all of the files you are editing for the ever so important "Fix build break" commit.
