Don't know.  What you should do is open a bug against sparc requesting
that the sources you are interested be wrapped in an ebuild which would
support a version of java which would be acceptable to you.  If you
generate a bug like that, someone --- maybe me --- would at least look
at it.

Don't pursue blackdown; sun's product seems to be superior.
