   Even worse -- the subversion meta package insists on "building" Sun's
JDK. Anyone have any luck installing that on a NetBSD/amd64 system?

   Subversion, Python, Ruby, et. al. Are extremly portable -- Java is
not. I see no reason to disable the subversion meta package for all the
non-i386 users out there.

   Subversion already uses the options framework -- wouldn't it make
sense to add Java as an option which isn't enabled by default?

Kind regards,
