Have you tried it? openjdk requires a native jdk to build, doesn't accept the
linux ones, so chicken and egg.
Trying to build java/jdk16 with a linux one also does not work, because of
unsafe functions in the make program that it builds as one of the first
things. Also, the linux jdk6 requires one to dig into archives as the port is
at update 10 while Sun is at update 14.
So for the time being, libmap.conf is the only working solution and to make it
more specific, it needs libz.so.4. The error message java generates points no
where near libz, so kudos to whoever found out it's that library.
