You are right, but the port has the following line:

BUILD_DEPENDS+= ${BOOTSTRAPJDKDIR}/bin/javac:${PORTSDIR}/java/diablo-jdk15

So, even if it correctly find the installed
/usr/local/jdk1.5.0/bin/javac binary, it adds the diablo dependency.
Portmaster checks all the dependencies, even if the binary file exists,
and so try to install the diablo jdk. All java ports should be fixed
regarding this issue.
