Disclaimer: IANAE, but I do have Java running ATM with Seamonkey.
Do you have
Or something similar?
If so, make a link to it in /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/ and restart
the browser. Worked for me; although, I had done this previously and
somehow "lost" the installation during a recent portupgrade. I'm pretty
sure there's some magic in /etc/libmap.conf, also, but I think the port
is supposed to do that for you....
Whatever became of eternal truth?
