I've had varied results.  My packages probably aren't the most recent hamm
packages (actually, I think I grabbed everything before comming home for
the holidays, in mid-december).  v3 seems to work, but not every time.  v4
has a much harder time.  Also I was having different results from calling
it from the command line and the window manager (but that may have
changed since I upgraded fvwm to hamm).  Results vary from seg faults to
zombie netstat processes.  It relies on quite a few libs:

bhmit1@hobbes(p1):bhmit1$ ldd /usr/lib/netscape/netscape
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXt.so.6 (0x4000b000)
        libSM.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libSM.so.6 (0x4004d000)
        libICE.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libICE.so.6 (0x40056000)
        libXmu.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXmu.so.6 (0x4006b000)
        libXpm.so.4 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXpm.so.4 (0x4007d000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXext.so.6 (0x4008b000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libX11.so.6 (0x40096000)
        libdl.so.1 => /lib/libdl.so.1 (0x40134000)
        libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x40137000)

communicator has one more:
        libm.so.5 => /lib/libm.so.5 (0x401f3000)

When I get a chance, I'll try upgrading these one by one to the latest in
hamm, but that is guaranteed to be a while.  I don't know if this will
help you, but maybe it will get some reactions out of others who know more
about this stuff.
