You are tunning a libc5 version of netscape. The libXpm in
/usr/X11R6/lib will be libc6 so it is not useful to this version of
netscape. You need to either install the glibc2 version of netscape
or (simpler) install the libc5 version of libXpm with dselect. xpm4g
is the libc6 version which gives you the library in /usr/X11R6/lib.
xpm4-7 (in the dists/stable/main/binary-i386/oldlibs directory) is the
libc5 version and will work with this version of netscape.
