Calculate linux and java

When I tried to remove libreoffice, as I don’t need it, I discovered that calculate-meta is dependent on libreoffice for its java support. Can I add java or jre to my system, rebuild it and remove libreoffice?

Joe, it might be a better idea to remove the office dependency of calculate-meta, by editing the CALCULATE variable in /etc/make.conf.

Thanks. I am new to Calculate linux but long time gentoo user. I like having the options Calculate offers.
