Matlab will work on FreeBSD (using Linux binary support), but you have
to muck around with the startup scripts to make it believe FreeBSD is a
supported platform. 

As for Java, you obviously have discovered that the native JDK in
FreeBSD 4.x doesn't work very well. My suggestion would be to install
the Linux JDK, and create some fancy symlinks if Matlab doesn't allow
for specifying where the java executable is located.

Hope this helps.
