Hi Will - thanks. I can see the _05 file easily, but
looking at freshports for jdk14, I cant see the other
files that are downloaded into distfiles (eg, there are
3 more j2sdk* files required as well).
Taking one as an example - j2sdk-1_4_2-src-scsl.zip.
It is not at all clear to me where this file is named
as part of the jdk14 download, or even where it appears
in the Makefile.
Any other clues ?
are defined as part of jdk14.
