While emacs can be used to repair executables, I fail to see how this

Unless you change the way netscape forms the commands, you have fixed

It really is not that hard to upgrade to bash 2.01 and libc6 ....
if you follow the exactly the directions that have been posted on this

I did it without those instructions, before many had tried that route.
Had a few anxious moments, because I got a few thing out of order. But

The libc6 issue is no big deal unless you need to do development with
