Steven, the kfreebsd port was backported from OpenJDK 8 by Damien. In the past 
we had to wait for several months for updated kfreebsd patches to get the 
openjdk-7 built again on these architectures, despite pinging the kfreebsd 
porters.  How did that change?  How can you make sure that this won't repeat 
again?  I'm not in favour defaulting that again to openjdk-7 or openjdk-6.
