So far as I know, and modulo bugs that exist in the application, the
BSDI binary for Netscape works fine on NetBSD-1.0 (and probably on
NetBSD-current too).  At least it fires up and shows our server's home

I.e. fetch the file netscape-v11b1-export.i386-unknown-bsd.tar.Z and
give it a try!

They still have the most annoying bug of not changing the underline to a
dashed line on already visited links for the benefit of those of us who
prefer to do our daily work on high-res monochrome screens....
