[PC-BSD Testing] Ports install of Diablo jre - can't symlink to /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins

Installed FF3.07 from PBI
Installed Diablo jre-1.6.0 from package, and javamvwrapper from ports.
Tried to follow directions in FreeBSD handbook for symlinking as follows:
lnln -s /usr/local/diablo-jre1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so \

The target directory .../browser_plugins doesn't exist.
Neither does: /PCBSD/local/browser_plugins

Tried creating these directories and symlinking, but the FF java plugin just doesn't show up.

I did this before with an earlier version and had no problem.

Finally just installed Diablo jre from PBI and it worked.

What changed?  I wanted a ports install so that other ports installed programs
could find java, like Eclipse.  Once tried to Install Eclipse using jdk instead of jre
and could never get it to find java.
