Default Cant accept licence

I am trying to install an older version of java (1_5_0_12) using an
ebuild from the attic and am getting a problem accepting the licence.
After displaying the licence, "More ..." is printed at the bottom of the
screen as expected. Pressing any and every key does move the cursor
around the screen, but whatever is displaying the licence wont react so
I cant accept it. The downloaded java bin pkg does work as expected
when I run it manually, so the problem must be portage I think.

Is there a way to accept the licence?

Try setting ACCEPT_LICENSE="-*" during install of java
(http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17367).

no luck. That bug imples that ACCEPT_LICENCES isnt part of the current
portage in any case. My problem is that I cant accept the licence when
emerging

Sorry about that I thought it was . Anyway, I'd edit the ebuild:

LICENSE="dlj-1.1", change the license to something else. Hopefully
this is the only thing you need to change.
