FWIW, this is how wip/jdk14 and wip/jdk15 (Java built from source) work.
They depend on lang/sun-jdk14 ant lang/sun-jdk15 (their Linux-binary
equivalents) respectively, but only for building.  Once you have built your
own Java binaries, you can use those (and remove the linux binaries) for
later rebuilds, although you have to modify the package Makefile for that.
