RE: More legacy/proprietry app headaches.
I made it work by using libc5, xpm and xlib from the bo distribution (I'm using potato) see:
Use alien to convert them to .tgz, and put them into their own directory, e.g. /usr/local/oldlibs. They take up about 2.5MB. You'll need to resymlink libxmu and libice. Then use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use those libraries:
Using libc5 and xpm4 in potato would segfault for me, but using the older versions works for nscal 6.1
