I may be mistaken about this, but wouldn't not building with x-libraries
make fairly large parts of the Java runtime environment ie java.awt.* &
java.swing.* broken?

If this is true, why would you want this?  I suspect that many Java
applications make use of functionality within these name-spaces even if
they don't seem to be an "X based" application?

As a side note, the Makefile for java/jdk15 specifies
x11-toolkits/open-motif as a BUILD_DEPENDS not a RUN_DEPENDS which
indicates to me that you could remove open-motif after java was built
although this seems wrong to me.  Is this a Makefile bug?

That will prevent the building of the Java web plugin for Mozilla.
