FYI -

just installed  icedtea6   on my Ultra2

updated virtual/jdk  and virtual/jre  so that they would install as
well.

updated dev-java/antlr   and built it successfully.

currently building  dev-java/ant-1.7.1-r1
   core  built and installed correctly.
the remaining packages will take some time:

dev-java/xml-commons-external dev-java/xml-commons-resolver
dev-java/ant-nodeps dev-java/jakarta-regexp dev-java/javacup
dev-java/bcel dev-java/xjavac dev-java/junit dev-java/xalan-serializer
dev-java/ant-apache-resolver dev-java/ant-apache-regexp dev-java/xerces
dev-java/xalan dev-java/ant-junit dev-java/ant-trax


hooray for java on sparc!
