So, I'm trying to get Java working on NetBSD. I found that I probably
should install wip/jdk14. I jumped through the hoops and discovered that
the file bsd-jdk14-patches-current.tar.gz I downloaded is apparently not
the right one.
This is from wip/jdk14/distinfo:
Size (bsd-jdk14-patches-current.tar.gz) = 1580578 bytes
This is what I got from

On a lark, I did "make distinfo" and tried to build. That led to all
sorts of non-amusing patch rejections.
So, two things:
1. What changed? How do I fix this problem?
2. Exactly what am I supposed to install to get a Java app that uses
Swing working? What's the correct command line invocation?
In particular, I'm trying to get these two apps working.
