Scilab depends on certain java packages

Dear all,

I'm working on rescuing scilab's port (math/scilab), but it seems the
latest version depends on loads of java packages that don't seem to
have corresponding ports.

Is the correct procedure for me to:

 - Create a new port for each java package


 - Somehow automatically download each java package to install along
with the scilab port?

There's a distinct lack of ports for java, so I'm worried I'm doing it wrong....
