This is Sun's JDK 5.0 Update 1 from [1], i.e. I got the "Linux
self-extracting file (jdk-1_5_0_01-linux-i586.bin, 43.98 MB)",
`make-jpkg`ed it and `dpkg -i`ed the resulting package[2].

What I wanted to point out is that I didn't use fakeroot in the process,
not that's some kind of Java straight from the Debian archive; sorry for
the confusion.

[2] with java-package 0.17 I had to add manually to
    /usr/share/java-package/sun-j2sdk.sh before the `make-jpkg`,
    but it seems to be fixed in java-package 0.18
