Normally, one would run those commands once, and use the java port to build a 
native Java for FreeBSD, which is being bootstrapped from running the 
precompiled Linux Java package you have to download yourself from Sun.

Once you have a native FreeBSD java package, you don't need to mount linprocfs 
or use Linux emulation to run java....
