The older JDK ports had alternatives for just the JRE. And since 90% of the time most people need only the JRE that's a much smaller package that builds more quickly.

Could we have this either as an option in the Makefile or a separate port?

Note that Oracle has dropped JRE only builds. Maybe Greg can shed some light whether this is worth the effort.
