OK, I'm sending email of to Sun's licencing folks to check that this
isn't a violation of the source agreement.

In the meantime, and given the jdk licence has been this way forever,
can we please install new jdk packages.  It's getting really old
hearing about how the jdk doesn't work with glibc2.1 and if the
licence issue can't be resolved the version of the package being
pulled will make little difference.
