System: NetBSD iller 1.6K NetBSD 1.6K (ILLER-$Revision: 1.51 $) #0: Sat Nov 2 15:39:05 CET 2002 root@iller:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/ILLER i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
The sun-jdk13 and sun-jre13 packages both use a DISTNAME named
j2re-1_3_1_02-linux-i386. The latest bugfix release is named "06"
(rather than "02").

I think this is important because the version currently in pkgsrc is
unable to run the Sun Java2 Enterprise Edition Tutorial. I had to
update to release "05" to make that work. I haven't tried J2EE with
"06" but I would assume that it also works.

When I get some more time I promise to put together a package for the
Sun J2EE too... ;-)

Try the Sun J2EE tutorial on NetBSD (J2SDK 1.3 is explicitly
recommended by Sun for this, rather than 1.4).

Hopefully just change the DISTNAME, and rebuild distinfo.
