After running into problems installing flood with Macports, specifically:

Error: db46 requires the Java for Mac OS X development headers.
Error: Download the Java Developer Package from:
Error: Target org.macports.configure returned: missing Java headers

I had already installed this!

The solution was to create a symbolic link to the installed files, so Macports could find them:

sudo ln -s /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Headers /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Headers
