Your best bet in that case would be to install the diablo package from
http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml (for me the 6.1
package works fine on 6.2 and i've seen posts from other people saying
the same.) Then install the sun jdk port, which can use the diablo
package to build. You can then deinstall the diablo jdk. (personally I
just use the diablo package and dont bother recompiling but I'm not an
advanced java user, just wanted it for the browser plugin really.)
