Yes, there are/were quite some problems (which may not become immediately 
apparent with "standard" use but will as soon as you use Java software such 
as the sun-wtk). Generally, you'll want to build the sun-jdks on RELENG_7, 
using the diablo-jdk as a bootstapper and removing it after at least one 
other jdk has been installed.

Instructions for downloading the sources and BSD-patches for the sun-jdks are 
in ports (i.e., "cd /usr/ports/java/jdk1<x>; make" will tell you what to do).
