After installing pycharm-ce (2020.2.2) on a FreeBSD 12.2 P1 system the program won't start. A closer look shows that java version 8 is in the dependencies but java 11 is required by at least one of the packages pycharm-ce depends on.
So installing pycharm-ce always drags java 8 into the installation even if java 11 is already installed. You need to install both java 8 and java 11 at the moment to get pycharm-ce running correctly and have to set JAVA_VERSION to 11 for invoking pycharm-ce (so java 8 has to be installed and but is not used).
Maybe it would be better to include java 11 instead of java 8 into the pycharm-ce dependencies…

pycham-ce: change java version to 11
Just stumbled across this bug.
@Stephan Are you sure JAVA 8 is needed?
I ended up removing JAVA 8 and installing JAVA 11 JRE.
pycharm-ce seems to run fine without JAVA 8.
I also fixed the dependency issue by just adding JAVA_VERSION to the Makefile.
And setting it to JAVA 11.
Attached is a very simple patch.
