I have linux-sun-jdk- and jdk-1.4.2p6_5 for Java support on 

Now I think you need to install linux-jdk first. run make install in 
in /usr/ports/java/linux-sun-jdk14/ and follow the instructions. The the same 
in /usr/ports/java/jdk14/. You have to download some files manually :-(

No. Sun forbids this. Follow the make install instructions.

Should be able
