I was struggling to get itweb-javaws to execute, due to it not being 
able to find libjava.so, after running it through truss, I was able to 
determine that its looking for the library under /usr/local/lib/amd64, 
the file is located in /usr/local/openjdk7/jre/lib/amd64, I was able to 
work around the problem by creating a symbolic link to point 
/usr/local/lib/amd64 to /usr/local/openjdk/jre/lib/amd64, as the amd64 
sub-directory didn't exist in /usr/local/lib.

This does make me wonder though, if I am just missing something from my 
environment, that's causing this.  Or is the port install not doing 
something that it should be doing?

System is a new build of 9.2-RELEASE, compiled from source, source and 
ports all built with clang where possible.
