What you need is the wip (work-in-progress) pkgsrc tree, which has a
DragonFly-compilable jdk14 port:
The jdk14 port hasn't changed for several months, so just 'Downloading a
snapshot' should be fine. You don't need the latest from CVS unless you
are curious to explore further.
Once you have the 'wip' sources installed in /usr/pgksrc/wip, just:
If I recall correctly you need to download the jdk sources from Sun,
plus the patchset from http://www.eyesbeyond.com/freebsddom/java/
before the port will build, but the instructions should be printed
out when you do the 'bmake'.
I'm really not sure why the 'wip' jdk hasn't been promoted to the
main pkgsrc tree. Geert or Joerg, any idea?
