That's fine. Currently it doesn't appear to install the
fontconfig.properties file all together. Based on everybody comments
here are my suggestions, I'm not sure it's entirely possible.
1) place a default fontconfig.properties upsteam (bsd-port/jdk7, and my
patch) that relies only on completely free, GNUV2, or other less
2) in the port Makefile detect when the system langaunge is Japanese or
when japanese fonts are installed, and add the default free font
japenese/vlgothic as a runtime prereq. Also add a configure option to
use the ipa_fonts, that would add the japanese/ipa-ttfonts as a runtime
prereq and adds a special version fontconfig.properties that utilizes
these fonts. This could even be the default if the Japanese openjdk6
community decided this was best.
