I found the article "Use Linux applications with NetBSD" on BSD
Magazine No.3 (It is published in Japan). The author Kan Takahara
tried to run some Linux applications on NetBSD/i386 1.4Q.

The following applications are included in pkgsrc and work fine.

- Netscape Navigator 4.7 (www/navigator)
- Acrobat Reader 3 and 4 (print/acroread)
- Honyaku-no-Ousama POWER+ (japanese/king)
- Real Player 5 (It is replaced with Real Player 7 now, audio/realplayer7)

Unfortunately, these applications don't work.

- Shade for Linux Preview Kit (I don't know) 
- Wnn6 Ver.3 for Linux (Japanese input method)
- eWnn for Linux (Japanese/English translator)
- Honyaku-Damasi (Japanese/English translator)
- Oracle for Linux
- Ichitaro ARK for Java (Japanese word processor)
- ApplixWare
- VMWare

And I tried to run Objectivity/DB Linux on NetBSD/i386 1.5 ALPHA, but
it doesn't work.
