LXer: OpenBSD: Against all odds, I'm building Java

Published at LXer:

If you want Java in OpenBSD, it's not easy to get it. Not impossible, but definitely not easy. First of all, it's a port, not a package, and due to Sun's licensing restrictions for Java, when you run the build on the port, you are instructed to, on your own, fetch nine files (some source, some binary) from a variety of locations and place those files in /usr/ports/distfiles.
