Firstly I'm not a java person, I just noticed this because the buildds
don't like ORed build-dependencies which are partially satisfiable. Eg
the freebsd and sparc builds are currently looping and will continue
until an admin stops them:

I don't think it is possible (yet) to have a >= dependency on a java
version. You could depend on openjdk-7 but you'll have to update it
when the default changes.

On freebsd the latest version of openjdk-7 failed to build almost 2
months ago:

Maybe you could ask the java list for the best way to deal with this?
