OpenJDK 6 in FreeBSD Ports collection

As of today, there is an OpenJDK 6 package in the FreeBSD Ports collection.

The port was created by Brian Gardner, who backported the changes from the BSD porting Project of OpenJDK 7 to the latest OpenJDK 6 build. Brian is looking for testers.

The port has been tested on the amd64 architecture with good results so far, judging by mailing list traffic on the freebsd-java list. Build deamon results should appear at some point in the future on the corresponding FreeBSD site.
