I'm using poudriere to build packages to use on my servers (I have
about 20 of them). One of the packages I need is www/tomcat-native.
However, the way poudriere builds the ports, they are built in an
empty jail, so when tomcat-native selects the JDK to use, it picks
openjdk6 to install as a dependency. I need it to build against
OpenJDK7, since that is what my main software needs to run.
I read through the bsd.java.mk file and could not find a knob to set
(or even a hack around it) to get tomcat-native to pick openjdk7 as my
Please advise how to accomplish this. It is important to be able to do
this if we want to be able to have binary-package only FreeBSD
