Question jdk for sparc64

I have FreeBSD on a sparc machine (sparc64) and would like to do some java development, but am finding it hard trying to install the java development kit. Is it possible?

Code:
satan# make
===>  jdk-1.6.0.3p3 is only for i386 amd64, while you are running sparc64.*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/java/jdk16.
satan#

If you want to do Java development, don't use FreeBSD.

I hate to say it, but Java is a Sun technology. So is sparc hardware. And so is Solaris. Use Solaris + Sparc = Great Java development platform.

There, I said it.

Or, just use BSD and C, Java is *really* lame..
