Found simple bug in the blackdown-{jdk,jre} ebuilds and submitted patches.

Decided to try and gnu-ify the build of NIST dataplot. Yea, there are lots of statistics programs already available, but dataplot is nice for the following reasons.

1. It's been around since 1978 with continual enhancements and lots of testing. 2. It is integrated with the NIST/SEMATECH Handbook, very nice for learning about statistics.

Initally all I want to do is wrap the dataplot source with the Gnu build tools. Then might look into a gnome front-end for it.

I don't think licensing will be a problem as dataplot is public domain. However, I also would rather not fork the base code.
