I have done away with the blackdown-jdk12 and blackdown-jre12 packages and
replaced them with packages that use the Sun-sourced Linux port of JDK
1.3.0, both JDK and JRE.  they are in lang/sun-jdk13 and
lang/sun-jre13.  For JRE only, install sun-jre13; for full JDK, install
sun-jdk13 (which will install sun-jre13 as a dependency).

Note that if you're using, say, Jikes to compile and fastjar to archive, you
don't necessarilty need the sun-jdk13 package; just sun-jre13 may do.  It
will save a lot of diskspace if jdk13 is left out.  8-)
