Yes, it works fine.  I use this as /usr/local/lib/netscape:

LD_PRELOAD=libgnumalloc.so.5 \
exec /usr/local/lib/netscape/netscape "$@"

with the netscape binary and java file in /usr/local/lib/netscape.
You don't need the Debian netscape package to install it.  Now that
netscape is elf X11R6, it finds the right paths without the Debian
netscape installer patching it.
