It's not clear what directory '.' refers to there, but anyway ..

Having installed the jre the other day, running into the same problem,
perhaps the notes I made at the end of installing may be of some help.

First caveats: this on 5.5-STABLE and using Mozilla not Firefox, but I
doubt that either of those things matter.  Yes moz was installed first. 

===========
[..]
Running post-install for diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01..
Attempting to record package into /var/db/pkg/diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01..
Trying to record dependency on package 'xorg-libraries-6.9.0' with
 'x11/xorg-libraries' origin.
Trying to record dependency on package 'javavmwrapper-2.0_6' with
 'java/javavmwrapper' origin.
pkg_add: warning: package 'diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01' requires
 'javavmwrapper-2.0_6', but 'javavmwrapper-2.3' is installed
Package diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01 registered in /var/db/pkg/diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01


( to get the manuals, had to add to /etc/manpath.config:
OPTIONAL_MANPATH        /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/man
)

also see /var/db/pkg/diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01/+INSTALL .. says it should
have installed the plugin in /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins but this dir
doesn't exist .. so:

paqi$ mkdir /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins
paqi# ln -sf
/usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so 
 /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

paqi# ll /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins
total 0
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  63 Dec 27 17:39 libjavaplugin_oji.so -> 
 /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

But still the plugin doesn't turn up in mozilla about:plugins :(

Later .. worked it out from data on mozilla 'plugins for linux' page:

paqi# pwd
/usr/local/lib/mozilla/plugins
paqi# ll
total 20
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  18768 Nov 16 04:14 libnullplugin.so

paqi# ln -s /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so 
libjavaplugin_oji.so

paqi# ll
total 20
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  18768 Nov 16 04:14 libnullplugin.so
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     63 Dec 27 17:51 libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
 /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

.. and mozilla about:plugins happily sees it!
===========

And modulo some funny font effects sometimes, its running fine.

So find your firefox plugin directory (wherever libnullplugin.so lives) 
and put the link to the jre library there.  Don't know about the jdk.

Cheers, Ian
