JRE != JDK. The diablo jre is a java virtual machine, the jdk is the
developer kit that provides the java compiler, modules, and other jazz
needed for building and interpreting java source. Freemind is written in
Java, hence it must be compiled by the java compiler, which is provided
by the jdk. You can find the jdk ports at /usr/ports/java. There are a
few choices, such as the sun jdk releases and the diablo jdk. I'm not
sure what the difference is between the two, hopefully a FreeBSD Java
sage can chime in.
