Is there any way to run the update within the fakeroot inside the build function? Disabling updates which aren't included in the latest source doesn't seem like an ideal solution.

Also, is it necessary to have 'j2re' in the depends array? This currently prevents it from working with openjdk6... I'm not sure if this is due to an error in the provides line of jre (j2re, java-runtime=6) or openjdk (java-environment=6, java-runtime=6) or due to real incompatibility.
