Right ... it is not an RPM, and it is pre-compiled.

I put mine in /usr/lib/firefox-2.0 and did an ln -s
of /usr/lib/firefox-2.0/firefox to /usr/bin/firefox

I then copied the plugin in /usr/lib/firefox-2.0/plugins
to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin and then removed /usr/lib/firefox-2.0/plugins
and created a ln -s from /usr/lob/mozilla/pligins
to /usr/lib/firefox-2.0/plugins.

All seems OK on my 2 workstations I did that too, however I am not sure
everything is working 100% at this point.
