Eh, there's no need to flaming here. I never said maintaining Java on
FreeBSD was easy. I said that Java support on FreeBSD is dodgy, which is
really a well-known public fact, for anyone that's ever done any reading
on the subject. In fact, when the core developers give a public
interview, this is frequently a topic of discussion. 

Perhaps you should try working with Java 1.4.x on FreeBSD before you
assume something about me that's highly inaccurate. I think you'll find
very quickly that it doesn't work nicely unless the process is running
as root.
