   Strictly out of curiosity I downloaded libc-4.7.5.bin.tar.gz from
tsx-11, just to see if as I had been told that would allow me to run
Nestape 2.0b1:

        libc.so.4 => libc.so.4.7.5[tofu]
        libcurses.so.0 => libcurses.so.0.1.2[tofu]
        libm.so.4 => libm.so.4.6.27[tofu]

   Indeed, 2.0b1 appears to work OK now that I have these three files
sitting in my /lib directory, but I don't want to keep these three
files in my /lib directory, not only because they are not part of the
Debian distribution but also because common sense tells me I would
probably be courting disaster.

   I am not advocating that libc-4.7.5 be resuscitated and
incorporated into Debian GNU/Linux, but I am interested to know if
there any way I can use these three files on a one-time-only basis to
convert this dynamically-linked Netscape 2.0b1 binary into a static
binary, after which I could dispense with them.
