Default Openjdk/Iced Tea Browser Plugin now in OpenBSD

For those who need java in OpenBSD the IcedTea Plugin was just released to ports. It is a "little rough around the edges".
Import icedtea-web 1.1.2.

The IcedTea-Web project provides a Free Software web browser plugin
running applets written in the Java programming language and an
implementation of Java Web Start, originally based on the NetX project.
It works in gecko-based AND webkit-based browsers, and is meant as a
replacement for the dead/unmaintained/dreaded sun java plugin.

It is still a it rough at the edges (java process sometimes doesn't
finish when tab is closed, awt exceptions upon first paint), but let's
import it so that people can try it and debug it.

It is also unaffected by the recent Java CERT advisory.

Correction: this was just updated, it has been in the Ports tree for a year. The update, for -current users, is to version 1.3.1. Our 5.2-release/5.2-stable users have version 1.2 available to them.
