I've got the last java jdk 1.6 (diablo version) from freebsd
foundation and when I tried to install the tomcat 6 from the ports I
some problems. The tomcat 6 port* tries to find the java binaries in
the /usr/local/jdk1.5.0. Please see the output below.

Since I'm using the diablo-jdk1.6 that is located in
/usr/local/diablo-jdk1.6.0, it doesn't work. I tried to find some
variable to set where is my jdk, but no lucky.

I tried the following and it worked well.

cd /usr/local/ ; ln -s diablo-jdk1.6.0 jdk1.5.0

But creating a symbolic link from jdk1.5 to jdk1.6 seems not to be the
best way. Is there a better way to install tomcat 6 *from the ports*
using diablo-jdk1.6?

Thank you.
