Hi to all,

Moving these questions to discuss, since I didn't get reply on bsd and
macosx ports lists :

I couldn't find officials indications or documentation on how to add
Rhino from Mozilla to OpenJDK build.

The only source of information found was IcedTea 1.7 (1.14) with

1) CLOSED_SRC test removed (jdk/make/com/sun/Makefile)

-ifndef OPENJDK
-  ORG_EXISTS := $(call DirExists,$(CLOSED_SRC)/share/classes/sun/org,,)
-  ifneq ("$(ORG_EXISTS)", "")
-    SCRIPT_SUBDIR = script
-  endif

2) rhino.jar added to build (jdk/make/com/sun/script/Makefile)

3) sun.org.mozilla.javascript.internal.* moved to

4) repackaged rhino.jar copied under JRE /lib/rhino.jar

5) rhino.jar added to runtime jars (hotspot/src/share/vm/runtime/os.cpp)

All of these could be done on bsd-port and macosx-port and may be others ports.

Questions :

1) Did there is any reason why Rhino is not included in bsd-port (and
so macosx-port) like licence problems ?

2) What's the recommanded Mozilla renaming named ?

If there is no licence problem, I may add these to openjdk-osx-build
project for now, but it will be better to get them in bsd and
