That's fine.  Currently it doesn't appear to install the file all together.  Based on everybody comments 
here are my suggestions, I'm not sure it's entirely possible. 
1) place a default upsteam (bsd-port/jdk7, and my 
patch) that relies only on completely free, GNUV2, or other less 
restrictive licenses.
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 that utilizes 
these fonts.  This could even be the default if the Japanese openjdk6 
community decided this was best.
