It defines which java ports are allowed to satisfy the java build/run

According to /usr/ports/Mk/, any one of these ports will
satisfy the dependancy on java.

freebsd      java/diablo-jdk15, java/diablo-jdk16
bsdjava      java/jdk13 thru java/jdk16
openjdk6   java/openjdk6

If you install openjdk6 before building Open Office, it will use
openjdk6 and you won't need to download any files from Sun.
