So this is a libc5 version of netscape.  You need libc5 version of

These are libc6 versions.  libc5 versions would be in
/usr/lib/libc5-compat/ like libX11.so.6 shown above.

You need to install the xpm4.7 package (xpm4g is the libc6 package).
The same thing applies to libg++.  libg++27 is the libc5 pacakge you
need.  libg++272 is the libc6 version which you already have
installed.  In both cases and in general, the package description
(shown in dselect) specifies whether a library packages is for libc5
or for libc6.
