Installing latest Sun JDK on Ubuntu - Queries

I found some excellent material on installing the latest Sun JDK using fakeroot and make-jpkg. The current version of the JDK binary from Sun, however, appears to no longer include the plugin for browsers, but is available as a separate download.

My question is how to include the plugin in the resultant .deb file so that the the installation is complete, and the error that the dpkg produces can be avoided.
