Has anyone been able to run the Linux version of Netscape Communicator
version 4.7 under NetBSD.  I have Linux emulation compiled into my kernel,
and have tons of library files under /emul/linux, which allow me to run all
of the Linux versions of Netscape from 4.0 to 4.61 without any problems.  I
even run the Linux plugins like xswallow, Adobe acrobat, TCL/TK plugin, etc.
on any of these versions of Netscape.

Unfortunately I cannot run version 4.7, even with all of the plugins removed.
When I do, I get the SIGSEGV error, as shown in the following ktrace/kdump:

 16705 netscape CALL  brk(0x8de4000)
 16705 netscape RET   brk 148783104/0x8de4000
 16705 netscape CALL  getgid
 16705 netscape RET   getgid 100/0x64
 16705 netscape CALL  setgid(0x64)
 16705 netscape RET   setgid 0
 16705 netscape CALL  getuid
 16705 netscape RET   getuid 100/0x64
 16705 netscape CALL  setuid(0x64)
 16705 netscape RET   setuid 0
 16705 netscape CALL  pipe(0xefbfc020)
 16705 netscape RET   pipe 0
 16705 netscape CALL  pipe(0xefbfc018)
 16705 netscape RET   pipe 0
 16705 netscape CALL  fork
 16705 netscape RET   fork 16709/0x4145
 16705 netscape CALL  close(0x6)
 16705 netscape RET   close 0
 16705 netscape CALL  close(0x9)
 16705 netscape RET   close 0
 16705 netscape CALL  fcntl(0x7,0x3,0xefbfd2cc)
 16705 netscape RET   fcntl 1
 16705 netscape PSIG  SIGSEGV SIG_DFL

And the program dies here.  Any ideas why?  Even though there is a BSDI
which runs great under NetBSD, it is missing features that the Linux port
has, most noticable plugin support.  I am running ix86 NetBSD 1.3K.

Thanks in advance.  Sincerely, Alicia.
