I am trying this approach having first reverted to FF-52esr.  This
change gets the java console display in the SM web admin application. 
However, when I try to run the console launch.jnlp file the icedtea
version of javaws dies with the error:

     No iKVM64 in java.library.path.

I have discovered a reference to this error which says that the lines:

    <property name="jnlp.packEnabled" value="true"/>
    <property name="jnlp.versionEnabled" value="true"/>

Have to be added to the os specific resources block in the jnlp file.

<resources os="Linux" arch="amd64">
    <nativelib href="liblinux_x86_64__V1.0.5.jar" download="eager"/>
    <property name="jnlp.packEnabled" value="true"/>
    <property name="jnlp.versionEnabled" value="true"/>

I discovered that javaws is called itweb-javaws on FreeBSD.  However,
even downloading the jnlp file and editing it to add the suggested
lines, which are already present in the generic
<resources></resources> block, still returns the No iKVM64 message
when run with itweb-javaws.

Further research then turned up this thread
which contains the notice:

So I am left with getting ipmitool to work.
