Actually, it didn't work this way for me, so I did have to make the
symbolic link myself (to the ns610 version of it):

% cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
% ln -s /usr/local/jdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/

I guess this sort of makes sense.  You may have multiple versions of Java
laying around, and perhaps you want to customize that on a per-user basis.
