Dear Rob,

As far as I now there doesn't exist any 5.2.1-RC. You either have one
of RC versions or the release version of 5.2 or you run CURRENT. With 
all of these cases I would recerment you to up/down grade to RELENG_5_2
The manual can tell you more about this:

You have binaries? These might not work. You could compile the port
instead. You can do this by executing 'make install clean' from
/usr/ports/java/jdk14 - I run 5.2 and it works here so far.
