No, the diablo-jdk1.5.0 executable depends on
/usr/local/lib/compat/libpthread.so.2 which is in compat6x-i386
Bootstrap issues exist when you need e.g. a linux jdk in order to compile
the java classes of the FreeBSD native port. In that case you install the
linux-jdk-whatever, build/install the native port, pkg_deintall the linux-jdk-...
For some reason, now that i look at it, compat6x is not recorded as
a prerequisite for diablo-jdk1.5.0,
[achix at panix ~]% pkg_info -Rr diablo-jdk-1.5.0.07.01_9
Information for diablo-jdk-1.5.0.07.01_9:
Is there a problem, or is my pkg db broken?
