Azureus and Java 1.5

Hello FreeBSD users.
I recently installed FreeBSD 5.4 to replace Debian on my laptop that I use
both at school and at home, because FreeBSD has better support for power
management for my laptop hardware (especially much better frequency scaling)
and its always fun to play around with something new (well.. not that new, I
have used FreeBSD before, and I know how to do basic things like installing
ports and recompiling the world, but nothing advanced).
I use Java1.5 in the programming classes at school, so I need to have that
installed, and the installation of java 1.5 went fine. I also need Azureus
installed for downloading some files at home (other clients tends to be much
slower for some reason, not using up my connection to the max on the upload,
and because of that the downloads goes slower too). But when I tried to
install Azureus it gave me this error message:
/usr/local/jdk1.4.2/bin/jar: not found
Azureus should work fine with JDK 1.5 since it works fine both on Linux and
Windows with it, and Java is supposed to be very cross platform, right? I
would prefer to not have to install 1.4.2 for three reasons: I'm low on disk
space and having two JDK's takes up quite a bit of space, the compilation of
Java takes many hours and I don't want to wait that long again, and
according to Azureus website Azureus works much better with 1.5 than earlier
Before posting this message I tried changing JAVA_VERSION=1.4 to
JAVA_VERSION=1.5 in the port, and it gave me the following error:
such file or directory)
at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method)
Maybe there is some dependency that Azureus needs with 1.5 that it doesn't
need with 1.4? Some port I can install first?
A good solution to my problem would be an Azureus binary for FreeBSD, but I
can't find one and 'pkg_add -r azureus' doesn't find one either.
So my question is: How do I solve this problem?
Thanks in advance,
