Looks like there are replacements for these ports under a new home:

However, if there is no interest in keeping them, we might as well just remove these obsolete ports.

There are a few dependents of these ports, but which are also EOL or outdated (and might not be dependents once updated/deleted):

In fadc29f679c2faf805e12bec4c055ba9f2f5d3bb/macports-ports (master):

jakarta-(bcel|regexp): delete ports

jakarta-bcel: all dependents have been removed from MacPorts;
port has not been updated since 2009; upstream project is now
actively maintained as commons-bcel, but which has some
incompatibilities with jakarta-bcel.

jakarta-regexp: no other dependents;
upstream project retired in 2011.

Both ports have fallback dependency on deprecated port kaffe.
