OpenJDK is also free-as-in-speech, which is one of the reasons why it can be (re)distributed. OTOH, the official binaries have passed Sun's tests.

OpenJDK6 port build
I don't know exactly when it happened but there is currently an OpenJDK 6 binary port available for download from the usual place. The reason this is important is because the "official" Diablo/Caffe binaries distributed by the Foundation cannot be legally redistributed by third parties, precluding it for being included in FreeBSD-based products, LiveCD-s, etc.
