It can't.  The Sun download process is now heavily cookie-fied, so you need
a real browser to get it.

It shouldn't be moved just yet.  It's not quite production quality, and I
intend to do some cleanup on both jdk12 and jdk13 soon.  (jdk12, once I
clean it up to build and work correctly on -current, will be ready to move
to main pkgsrc and probably will not change at all after that.)
