 Odds aren't looking good for a JRL source release for 6u4-b12.  Thus far,
 my messages to Sun have went unanswered for the past few weeks concerning
 the missing JRL release.  Our friends over at the BSD ports will
 undoubtedly assist with the two security fixes, but have received the same
 response.  Fortunately, AFAICT, the new binary version does not depend on
 gcc-3.x which was one of my previously voiced concerns WRT the last
 missing release...and OpenJDK-6 will soon (VERY SOON) replace any need for
 the JRL sources and licensing.
