Well I have mozilla-firebird running with java 1.3.1 now. All you need
to do is to add a symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla-firebird/plugins/, e.g.:
ln -s /etc/alternatives/javaplugin_oji.so .

that means you still don't use a gcc-3.x compiled java...
Maybe you try to uninstall java first and then install the new packages
