I applied the given hints, but the originally problem now is replaced by 
another. After updating suse_compat-9.1nb1 to suse_compat-10.0nb3 with 
dependencies I was able to install and start firefox-linux properly 
(before that I was fighting against a symbol lookup error: 
/usr/lib/ undefined symbol: __sF).
about:plugins shows a registered java-plugin, but in case a applett 
should be loaded, firefox-linux died with [1]   Segmentation fault (core 
dumped) "${prog}" ${1+"$...
and couldn't restart. It argues, a process of it where be always 
running, but I coudn't find any appropriate process (ps ax). BTW, 
$HOME/.mozilla/plugins is removed.

So I will give up for time considerations, asking google in the days 
between and proceed tracing java-problems a few weeks later. May be, 
under NetBSD 4.0 ;-)

Thanks for all ideas
