When I do emerge dev-java/oracle-jre-bin, portage quoth:

!!! dev-java/oracle-jre-bin- has fetch restriction turned on.
!!! This probably means that this ebuild's files must be downloaded
!!! manually.  See the comments in the ebuild for more information.

 * Fetch failed for 'dev-java/oracle-jre-bin-', Log file:
 *  '/var/log/portage/dev-java:oracle-jre-bin-'
 * Package:    dev-java/oracle-jre-bin-
 * Repository: gentoo
 * Maintainer: j...@gentoo.org
 * USE:        abi_x86_64 alsa amd64 elibc_glibc fontconfig kernel_linux

 * Please download jre-8u162-linux-x64.tar.gz and move it to
 * /var/tmp/portage/dev-java/oracle-jre-bin-

But no matter how much I tried to please it (copying the file into a
distdir/ subdirectory, or copying it _as a file_ called distdir) I
couldn't get it to work.

OTOH, just doing what first comes to mind (putting the file in
/usr/portage/distfiles/) does work.

what the foo?
