sun-jdk-1.6 on Gentoo
Recently dev-java/sun-jdk-1.6 was masked and removed from the
virtual/jdkebuild. 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.
