I assume you mean "native" in the sense of "compiled for FreeBSD 7 
instead of FreeBSD 6".  They are both native FreeBSD binaries :-)

But yes, you should be using the self-compiled jdk on FreeBSD 7 for 
other reasons: it has better performance.  Once a 7.x build of diablo is 
released you can switch to that.
