Take, for example, devel/eclipse. It requires sun-jdk13. That jdk
pulls in suse_linux/Makefile.application and obviously depends on it.
However, devel/eclipse does not register a dependency on the suse_*
package -- this was an oversight by me and could be fixed by simply
including suse_linux/Makefile.application here.
However, since the suse-dependency is only due to the sun-jdk13
dependency I feel that by depending on sun-jdk13 (by setting PKG_JVM and
including java-vm.mk) this should be done automatically.

Similarly; I would need to add that.
