Default Java port disabled in -current

A check-in to source-changes@ today states that the official port of Java will now be disabled in i386:

Running Java applications on amd64 is an alternative. Java users on -current should consider this before upgrading.

Also, those running -current should be reading through the Following -current document whenever considering installing/updating -current systems.

This was an update to the FAQ, meaning that with the ports tree locked, it will not be available for 5.5.. Java 1.6 and ports dependendent on it havehave been unavailable since late December. If I recall, the port was marked broken for i386 in early January.

I think I should clarify.

This patch added comments regarding Java status to the Following -current FAQ. Ports that are marked $BROKEN are not normally mentioned in this document.

However, the Following -current FAQ is used as the source of entries for the next -release Upgrade Guide, and is my belief that the comment was added to the FAQ to ensure it is included in the 5.5 Upgrade Guide when developed.
