IIRC, when Gentoo upgraded to JDK 1.5.0, they removed the requirement
that you download Sun's JDK from their website and drop it in your
portage package directory. Now, portage can download and install it
automatically.

There are also a handful of non-Sun JDKs available through portage. Try
these packages instead:

dev-java/blackdown-jdk
dev-java/diablo-jdk
dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin
dev-java/jrockit-jdk-bin

I would recommend the IBM JDK personally. Some of the above are masked
for various architectures and patch levels, etc. but none of them look
like they require a "commercial" download.
