Note that Red Hat is now using a forked copy of the alternatives too.
They use it for different reasons and for different commands.  But it
is spreading beyond the Debian distro.

I should have added previously that if Java shows up as installed in
"about:plugins" as suggested by Jeff that I would trust that list.  If
you see Java there then I would assume that it is installed and
working.  If you don't then the opposite and it really is not
installed in a way that iceweasil can find it.  But I think it is
installed okay in your case.
