           Summary: Mk/bsd.default-versions.mk: update JAVA_DEFAULT to 17
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any

I'd like to modify JAVA_DEFAULT to 17 and request an exp-run with it.

JDK 17 was released in 2021 and is the current LTS.  It is being actively
supported (JDK 8 active support was stopped in March 2022) and many port are
requiring at least JDK 11.

Making JAVA_DEFAULT 17 would avoid installing JDK 8 for ports that required JDK
11, but also depends on other Java ports that did not specify a version
(notably, apache-commons-daemon).
