I tried removing libjogl-java, and KiNG still seems to work?  I don't
know if the graphics are being 'accelerated' or not, but:

So it may be that graphics rendering is fast enough in openjdk-6 and -7
that KiNG's use of JOGL is obsolete anyway?

If the libjogl-java dependency is dropped, king should be installable on
kfreebsd and then so would qiime.  And libjogl2-java transition can go
