This is a module that is optional.  It should be a separate pkg.

I really think that both the navigator and communicator packages should
install a symlink called just `netscape' in ${PREFIX}/bin, and CONFLICT= on
each other -- you shouldn't need both, and in fact, if you run both at once
you waste a lot of memory that could be shared text.

If the navigator and communicator pkgs are installed to install a
${PREFIX}/bin/netscape symlink, perhaps this would work?

DEPENDS=	${LOCALBASE}/bin/netscape:${PKGSRCDIR}/www/communicator
