Yes, sounds like a sane idea. Actually, to simplify
it, we can always ignore libs in linuxbase. Linux
ports only use run_depends anyway. So it boils down
to an extra "grep -v" in lib_depends processing in

Still, it will probably take no less than a month
to get it committed, so how about changing the java
ports now and saving many users a headache?
