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.
