The icedtea plugin regressed to a non-working state with the latest
openjdk7 update. Sorry about that, I need to look at it again.

For the wip packages, I think they are salvageable. The plugin build
will need some TLC and API tweaks, and I think they should
be converted to a two-stage build. Since I'm partly responsible for
the bitrot due to mozilla rototils in pkgsrc, I'll see what I can do.
