Did you run ldconfig after libXpm was installed? 

$ ldconfig -p | grep libXpm

should tell you if libXpm is being "seen".


$ ldd /usr/bin/netscape 

should list the libraries needed by the netscape binary (replace
/usr/bin/netscape with whatever is approriate for your installation) and
whether they are found in the system.

Hope that is not a well placed nudge in the direction of Netscape. ;-)
