When I first tried running netscape on my PC164, I was getting the same
error message. I did a ktrace/kdump on it, and started searching through
it to see if I might have missed something from DEC Unix (I was trying to
minimize the number of files I had to download), and after copying some
stuff from /usr/lib/X11/locale (locale.alias, locale.dir, and XLC_LOCALE),
netscape is now running on my PC164.
