The binaries disappear if you upgrade from an older version of the JDK.

Previously, they were installed in .../i586/ and i686 was a symlink to that.
Currently, they are installed in .../i686/ and i586 is the symlink. dpkg
does not handle that case very well (i.e., not at all)  Something similar
happened to X as well during the hamm freeze, IIRC.

A purge and reinstall will fix this problem, though.
