	I built a package for Sun's Jini.  Here's the DESCR:
This is a package of Sun's Jini Technology Starter Kit, consisting of the
Jini Technology Core Platform (JCP), the Jini Technology Extended Platform
(JXP) and the Jini Software Kit (JSK).

Jini[tm] network technology provides a simple infrastructure for delivering
services in a network and for creating spontaneous interaction between
programs that use these services regardless of their hardware/software

	I'm not sure how to properly implement the MASTERSITE part,
	as one has to agree to their license before downloading the
	original sources.  Also, they have a somewhat annoying
	naming-convention for their tarball, which is why
	I re-packaged their tarball.

	Finally, I'm not a Jini-developer, so I can't really verify
	that the package installs into the best place (maybe it
	should go into /usr/pkg/java/jini?).

	contains the pkgsrc-files and the re-packaged original tarball.
	Somebody with more of a clue might want to take a look at this
	package - I just thought it's be nice to have the Jini-stuff as
	a package.  If there's no interest, please ignore this message. :)
