JDK for Linux-Firefox

The pkg-descr file for linux-firefox says linux-blackdown-jdk1.4.1 is 
supported.  Unfortunately, the version of linux-blackdown-jdk in ports 
is 1.4.2.  When I make the obvious change to /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-firefo
x/linkfarm, no plugin installation seems to happen.  "usage:plugins" 
shows no JDK.  When I establish a symbolic link

	/usr/local/linux-blackdown-jdk1.4.1 -> /usr/local/linux-blackdown-jdk1.

and run an unmodified linkfarm, usage:plugins indicates that the JDK 
plugin has been installed, but linux-firefox core dumps as soon as I 
attempt to display a page with Java content.

What am I missing?  The name, plugin, doesn't imply to me that it 
should be this hard.
