If I include the jre*.rpm and/or the jdk*.rpm the genhdlist always spits out the warning that "ordering not found" for those packages and the installation fails as soon as it gets to the Preparing for RPM installation stage.  If I leave those packages out the install completes successfully.

Sure.  Sun incorrectly names their RPMs they provide for download vs.
the built-in N-V-R (name version release).  If you run "rpm -qp --qf '%
{name}-%{version}-%{release}\n' jre*.rpm", you should rename the RPM to
that name.

This takes care of genhdlist, etc.
