Thanks a lot for your answer.
I found a documentation for this question

It is up the porter to decide whether the port installs the additional
JAR dependencies under this directory or uses the already installed
ones (from ${JAVAJARDIR}).

However I got even more question about porting a java application
after reading this doc. I'll ask them in freebsd-java@
