Its really a lot easier to do this through the ports system. Just
cd /usr/ports/java/jdk14 && make install
Then follow the instructions. You will need Linux emulation enabled and
The manual build is really only for people who are prepared to investigate
and fix problems themselves (or who are masochists like me). That said,
your problem is that back when the last 1.4.2 patchset was released -lkse
was seen as the correct linkage for the threading libraries on FreeBSD
5.x. If you replace it with -pthread it will probably work.
