Default Problems Installing JDK on FreeBSD5.0

I have previously successfully installed the diablo JDK on the official compatible versions (FreeBSD 5.5 and 6.1) But I need to have JDK installed in numerous versions of FreeBSD. In this case i need it on 5.0 version...

The problem I have now is getting it installed in my FreeBSD 5.0 system
So i tried to pkg_add the diablo-jdk-freebsd5.i386. from this http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml website (the package is meant for FreeBSD5.5, but its the closest thing available for the 5.0)
Like in all the other times I've installed it (on the compatible versions)... it asked for the XORG libraries and the javavmwrapper-2.0_6. I managed to install the XORG Libraries manually and it works... so the only thing i am not able to install is the javavmwrapper which i need

I've tried numerous methods:

Method 1:
cd /usr/ports/java/javavmwrapper
make install clean
The result.... "make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue"
And yes my ports tree is updated

Method 2:
pkg_add -r ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/po...avmwrapper.tbz
In this method not only does it display the "...is in the future" messages, but at the end it says
"pkg_add: write_plist: unknown command type -1 (kaffe-1.*)"

Can anyone please let me know how i can get javavmwrapper installed so i can install the JDK on FreeBSD5.0??? Or any other ways of getting JDK installed?? Please and thanks!

Not to stray too far from the topic, but why not upgrade?? 5.0 was not the greatest release and so many things have improved since then......
