Sorry to say, but java ain't portable, there's no blessed version
of java running problemlessly under NetBSD - neither a native openjdk
or a sun jdk running under linux emulation. I am able to use it for
the most part in my work place, but sometimes things miraculously fail,
like a java instance whose all threads are sitting in parked. Most of
the times this happens with scala/lift on either tomcat or jetty,
but at times with trivial things such as scala's sbt.
