IBM is annoying about this. :p It seems they just updated their java stuff to SR7, so download that instead, but rename to the file that portage wants. In the /usr/portage/dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin/ directory, type
Code:

ebuild ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2.6-r4.ebuild digest


Which will then let you install the SR7 version using the SR6 ebuild.
