Subject: New JDK/JRE 1.3.0 available in pkgsrc

I have done away with the blackdown-jdk12 and blackdown-jre12 packages and
replaced them with packages that use the Sun-sourced Linux port of JDK
1.3.0, both JDK and JRE.  they are in lang/sun-jdk13 and
lang/sun-jre13.  For JRE only, install sun-jre13; for full JDK, install
sun-jdk13 (which will install sun-jre13 as a dependency).

Note that if you're using, say, Jikes to compile and fastjar to archive, you
don't necessarilty need the sun-jdk13 package; just sun-jre13 may do.  It
will save a lot of diskspace if jdk13 is left out.  8-)


...And what I forgot to say (the whole point of this announcement) is that
graphical applications don't appear to tickle our Linux kernel signal bug,
so you should have no problems using AWT/Swing apps with this JVM!

Please report any problems you have to me.
