  I went ahead and used the 'java' build stuff from the Slackware 14 DVD (found in
  'extra') instead of the build script from slackbuilds.org. This and the latest jdk
  (7u21 btw) installed and was used by my browser like it used to be.

  Also CERT has sent out an e-mail saying Oracle has fixed/patched the
  'problems'...at least for the time being, which is good enough for me, imo.
