	1) You need a working Java to build a working Java.
	2) Due to restrictions from Sun, there is no FreeBSD native JDK
	3) So, to build the 1.4 (or 1.5) _port_, we install the Linux
1.4 package and use it to compile the code.  Once the native port
has built successfully, you can delete the Linux port.
