Bug#346175: don't hardcode netscape

Package: vrweb
Version: 1.5-13
Severity: normal

Currently vrweb hardcodes netscape as the Help utility, so help is therefore
not available.  README.Debian talks about the problem, saying mosaic is the
only alternative.  But that was in 1999, surely we can do better in 2006!

Would it help to simply hard code "x-www-browser" instead of "netscape" in
the source code?
