On suggestion from Marc Recht ( 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
  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.
