I experimented with the following, under jre/lib/mipsel:

mv server/libjvm.so server/libjvm.so.orig
cd server
ln -s ../jamvm/libjvm.so

And then when doing:

java -version

I got the right version (the inline, not the zero hotspot)...  So
that's good news, however in order to have the icedtea plugin so, I
still need to have the netx installed.

I was expecting a perfomance boost on applets, but I didn't noticed
any at least on gmail, :-)

Not sure if that's all to be done, cause if so, I better stick with netx, :-)
