On suggestion from Marc Recht (firstname.lastname@example.org) I've reviewed
the patches in FreeBSD's java/jdk13 port for applicability to this package,
for the interest of anyone who wishes to import it to pkgsrc.
* The patch for gethostname_r may be required for NetBSD-current, so it
probably should be included here. It can be fetched via:
* The patch for DEVTOOLS_PATH (patch-common::Defs-bsd.gmk) should not be
necessary, as this package sets ALT_DEVTOOLS_PATH to override it.
* The threads patches against HotSpot are not yet applicable, as HotSpot is
not being built by this package. (I plan to have a NetBSD-current machine
and/or VMware session up and running soon to address getting HotSpot built
in this package.)
* The patch I've supplied (patch-aa) that removes -lpthread from libcmm.so
still applies to NetBSD-current. There is no reason -- at least for the
Classic VM, which is only compiling green threads -- to link -lpthread
to this library. (Doing so may in fact cause AWT things to break
horribly.) I'll revisit this when doing the HotSpot porting work.
