Same issue here. amd64 6.2-STABLE, ports tree synched as of 12 March. looking 
to run FireFox in 64 bit native (not 32 bit linux emulation). Installed 
diablo-jre-15 and diablo-jdk-15, the plugin is not in either of them. I 
assume the plugin name is different for 64 bit, but I do not know how to make 
it build. The jdk build instructions say how to build for 32bit platforms, 
but are silent when it comes to 64bit. 

Built  jdk15 (23 March -- no changes to ports in the interval), nothing there. 
Same went for jre15 build.

This plugin is present in linux-firefox/jdk/jre 1.4.2:

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     78 Mar 23 
14:46 /usr/local/lib/linux-firefox/plugins/ -> /usr/local/linux-sun-jdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/

but that one seems to have issues with the application I am trying to run. 
Given the nature of the app (SSL tunnel by dodgy hw vendor), I can't say I'm 
all that surprised, which is why I'm trying to use a more recent jre on 
native platform. I can live without flash, but I can't get by without 

Last cvsup (10 April) shows no changes to the appropriate ports directories...

CC:ing both lists, as from everything I see, it pertains to both hardware 
platform and java.
