I built jdk16 a few months ago & the urls were right.

Is your ports tree up-to-date? Although I don't think the urls have

What errors are you getting? 404s? What urls are you using?

IIRC you have to register an account with Sun before you can download
the jdk from their site.

You have to place the downloaded files in /usr/ports/distfiles/ before
you can build the port without make(1) dropping out after printing the
message with the urls.

The port built fine for me.
