I wanted to compile it, however, you need the source from sun to do it. :(
===>  jdk-1.2.2b10 You must manually fetch the source distribution and
FreeBSD patches (jdk1_2_2-src.tar.gz  freebsd-jdk122-patches-10.tar.gz) from and, place it in
/usr/ports/distfiles and then run make again.

I have the freebsd-jdk122-patches-10 but not the jdk1_2_2-src :( despite the
fact I am in the UK and my sunlogin is for the UK it will still not let me
have it :(
