It is a little complicated right now and the web site documentation is
very meagre. But the general gist is:
1. install the linux_base port
2. install the linux_jdk port
3. install the FreeBSD JDK which will require you to manually download
the JDK from Sun and then manually download the patchset from
You need to install the linux JDK first, because is is required to
build the FreeBSD JDK from source. Even though
http://www.freebsd.org/java/newsflash.html says that the native JDK
will be available in January 2002 it doesn't appear that this is yet
