Sorry, what I meant was the typo "oppenjdk". At least, I presumae it's
a typo.

It's unfortunate that pkgsrc don't put the tag that the tarball matches
in the file name. As it is, it's difficult to be sure exactly what they've
checked out.

You should probably set the build number, which ought to be b14
assuming the source matches the release.

Eg, I have:

# /usr/jdk/openjdk1.8.0_92/bin/java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_92"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_92-b14)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.92-b14, mixed mode)
