java diablo-jdk

I do not see the point to keep diablo-jdk as a build dependency of java.
Is there something that prevent us to distribute a package of openjdk,
just to be able to built a native version of openjdk or sunjdk ?

I'm tired of the "fetch the diablo-jdk from FreeBSD and agree with the
license". And even more since I use poudriere to build packages.

The FreeBSD java support is not bad (I'm happy with it, I can do
all my Java developpement on FreeBSD using netbeans and openjdk) but
this dependency on diablo really sucks. We don't need this IMO.

What do you think of this?
