So they changed the name of the library?

It is weird, since the i586 JDK has the old library
(<whatever>/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so), but the 64-bit
JDK does not.  They both have the libnpjp2.so library.  Firefox's config
does show that the name of the java plugin library is
libjavaplugin_oji.so -- does this matter?
