   After discussing with Bob Frazier, he had trouble applying my patch and 
 tried to manually get to the same goal as it had but missed the changes added 
 by patch-src-gnu-io-RXTXCommDriver.java which does the same as his last 
 listed patch.
   We both have success under openjdk; made the SerialImp patches unneeded by 
 Bob. After giving some thought to requiring openjdk, the only way I see to do 
 it is to test JAVA_PORT_VENDOR and list as ignore with a message saying it is 
 only for JAVA_VERSION=openjdk but it has worked with other JDKs to talk to my 
 device through a USB port successfully.
   It seems handy to have comms/rxtx be able to be installed multiple times 
 with different JAVA_VENDOR values, but upgrading is then not a clear path as 
 it would require rebuilding the port with the knowledge of that variable on 
 each build.
