My jdk13 package under pkgsrc-wip allows this.  Get pkgsrc-wip, and build
wip/jdk13 with "JDK_WITH_PLUGIN=YES" in your mk.conf.

I don't currently have any prebuilt binaries of wip/jdk13 with the plugin
included, unfortunately, because the plugin ABI changed a bit between
Mozilla 1.3 and 1.4.  It has to be built from source at this time.
