I succeeded in building jdk14 instead. My manual downloads were: j2sdk-1_4_2_11-linux-i586.bin j2sdk-1_4_2-bin-scsl.zip j2sdk-1_4_2-src-scsl.zip bsd-jdk14-patches-8.tar.gz
The port instructions added an extra step.

What is the bootstrap you speak of? Peter --- Nikolas Britton <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > On 6/12/06, Peter <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > Hi gang.
