Hmmm... as far as I can see, you don't need OpenMotif at all, and the
only bits of X Windows you need are imake and the XFree86-libraries:

    happy-idiot-talk:~:% pkg_info -r jdk-1.4\*
    Information for jdk-1.4.2p6_4:
    Depends on:
    Dependency: expat-1.95.7
    Dependency: pkgconfig-0.15.0_1
    Dependency: javavmwrapper-1.5
    Dependency: imake-4.3.0_2
    Dependency: freetype2-2.1.7_2
    Dependency: fontconfig-2.2.2,1
    Dependency: XFree86-libraries-4.3.0_6
    Dependency: urwfonts-1.0

Now, this is what's required for running jdk-1.4.2 -- installing is a
different matter.  First time installation will require you to install
a Linux JDK and the whole Linux compatability environment.  Once
you've got a native jdk-1.4.2 you can delete all that, and then use
the native JDK to compile any updates.
