Kito and I discussed this yesterday, and he committed the fix about  
15 hours ago, or somewhere thereabouts. From what I can see in CVS,  
the problem is fixed. He essentially did what you did, but in an  
effect of what he felt is more correct. Since I'm no expert on how  
the java herd divides up the packages, I left him to do his thing. To  
save you the trouble, here's the important stuff:

It's a good thing that you posted this, though. It provides a good  
follow-up, and opens the floor for discussion on said changes. So,  
people -- discuss, if you so desire! As always, we, the Gentoo for  
Mac OS X team, are open to comments, suggestions, free food, and
