Well, it's a x86 only binary release, so you'll have to use a multilib
profile, and might have to install some emul-libraries. And the mozilla
plugin will be 32bit, but will be put among 64bit-stuff, so that won't
work, but you should be able to get the rest working. Forget it ever
entering ~amd64 in portage though...

However, for everyday issues I'd recommend blackdown-jdk instead, which
shares ~90% sources with sun-jdk, but is available as a real amd64 package.
