Without Java you'll have no UNO interface support. So apparently you must
have Java installed somehow.

You could run:

chk_spreadsheet_support ('', 2)   ## Note: that's two consecutive quotes !

which will tell you if Java is supported and which spreadhsheet I/O
interfaces are supported.

No you don't. Just run:

pkg rebuild -auto <names of all packages you want to be autoloaded>

so for just io you'd do:

pkg rebuild -auto io
