i'm using java 1.4  patchset 6 on fbsd 5.2.  it seems to run okay as far as 
i'm aware.

i installed it for the sun java plugin for fireforx, which i know seems a 
very convoluted method.  IIRC you need the sun linux java binary, java 
sources, and the patchset.  it took years to compile on one of my P3s, but 
such is life ;-)
