I found an answer off-list. In case anyone is wondering, I had to first
install java/diablo-jdk15 (with compat6x), then install java/jdk15. After
that, I simply removed diablo-jdk15 and added a symlink to
/usr/local/lib/browser_plugins in order for Firefox to recognize the browser
plugin. Works great now. Many thanks to Vlad Galu for the answer.
