I see. For your information, I used java-environment as the
makedepends, not a specific java package, since both openjdk6 and jdk7
are available (and let people use the oracle version from AUR). So the
problem may have been with one of the java package, and may have been
corrected since, instead of a problem with makepkg? That would explain
