You need to install the xlib6 and xpm4.7 packages from the oldlib
section.  Please notice, that the X11 related libraries are taken from
/usr/X11R6/lib where the libc6 based libs are located.  If you install
the above packages and issue a ldconfig command (after making sure,
that the /etc/ld.so.conf file contains a "/usr/lib/libc5-compat" line)
your netscape should find the correct libraries.

If you already have these packages installed, check the
/etc/ld.so.conf file and the output of ldconfig -p, e.g.:

~$ /sbin/ldconfig -p|grep Xt.so
        libXt.so.6 (libc6) => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6
        libXt.so.6 (libc5) => /usr/lib/libc5-compat/libXt.so.6
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ You need this lib
        libXt.so (libc6) => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so
