Openoffice on sparc64

Openoffice seems to require java.  The ports install of Openoffice
proceeds to try to install the FreeBSD java that bootstraps itself
with linux java.  Of course, the linux java doesn't run on sparc64.

Are there sparc64 java binary packages that run on FreeBSD ... or is
there some other bootstrap mechanism that I can follow?
