Both of these are available as debian installer packages, you know.

Er, just run them. If it's linked with libc5, the linker will have it use

joey@kite:~>ldd /usr/lib/netscape/netscape
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXt.so.6 (0x4000c000)
        libSM.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libSM.so.6 (0x4004e000)
        libICE.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libICE.so.6 (0x40057000)
        libXmu.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXmu.so.6 (0x4006c000)
        libXpm.so.4 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXpm.so.4 (0x4007e000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXext.so.6 (0x4008c000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libX11.so.6 (0x40097000)
        libdl.so.1 => /lib/libdl.so.1 (0x40135000)
        libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x40138000)
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x401f4000)

Of course, /usr/lib/libc5-compat needs to be listed in /etc/ld.so.conf.
