I did the following :
cd /usr/ports/java/linux-sun-jdk14
make install

I was then instructed to download j2sdk-1_4_2_10-linux-i586.bin from

Placed the file in /usr/ports/distfiles

Ran make install again

I was instructed to remove the previous version of j2sdk and install the 
new version via a make deinstall / make reinstall sequence

All of my ports are now up to date and everything seems to work fine.
Thanks Mike, I owe you one :-)
