Odi's astoundingly incomplete notes

sun-jdk-1.6 on Gentoo

Recently dev-java/sun-jdk-1.6 was masked and removed from the virtual/jdk ebuild. Of course you can still unmask it (in /etc/portage/package.unmask). But Portage still wants to pull in dev-java/icedtea-bin. You really don't need that if you have the sun-jdk. To prevent Portage from pulling it in, simply mark a high version of it as provided.

/etc/portage/profile/package.provided:
dev-java/icedtea-bin-6.999
