It seems that mk/ is the means of determining which java
version to install for packages the have dependencies on java.  While
pkgsrc does have a sun-jdk15 package that can be installed on a Linux
x86_64 machine, there is no indication of such in the definition of
_ONLY_FOR_PLATFORMS.sun-jdk15 in  Consequently, I am
finding that packages requiring that dependency are reporting that no
suitable VM exists.  The following patch fixes that immediate problem.

However, I am not really sure if this is appropriate and correct.  I
am also not sure if the obvious additions for the other
_ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM.* variables are appropriate.

Is this the correct thing to be doing?

Thanks for your help.
