I believe the Sun SPARC srcs will compile on FreeBSD, that's what they
used in the jdk port.  Haven't tried it myself, because the tarball is
gigantic (like 13 MB) and I only have a 14.4k modem :(

Excuse me? As far as I know, only Sparc *binaries* has been
released. An anyway, it is not easy to adapt the JVM to a new OS.

The 13 MB are due to packing by uuencoding a *.Z file and wrapping a
shellscript aroudn it.

It's half the size as .tar.gz. And those folks at sun wonder why their
servers overload...
