I built binaries for NetBSD 5.0 that are available via the openjdk-bin

package in pkgsrc, but not for earlier releases (although I probably

should build a NetBSD-4 version, since that's still an officially

supported release train).


I'd expect openjdk to just build on NetBSD-3, see


for a recipy. Once you scrub your environment(*) it's fairly

straightforward, it just takes a while to build.


The patch I needed for the openjdk version I put onto has

since been integrated, so that one isn't necessary any more; but as lots

new code has been added, too, there's chance of entirely new fun to be






(*) variables like eg $BIN get used as conditional, and the script that

sets them as a "yes" indicator doesn't unset them as a "no" indicator,

if you already had them set because you use them differently, you get

surprising results. If I had lots more time I'd want to hunt them all
