I'm not sure if you can run Netscape 6 with slink because it (slink)
uses glibc 2.0.x, which is not thread-safe. (On the other hand, maybe
they managed to link statically ?)

if this library is not installed, then I don't see any reason why you
shouldn't remove it. The symlink is useless.
Still one question remains unanswered: how does this happen ?
