It's a statically linked Motif app, yeah.  That's why it's so big and
bloated.  (Well, part of the reason...)

The source code for 5.0 will be released, but I see no reason to believe
that it will not be Motif.  We'll just have the freedom to port it.

BTW, RedHat itself even announced that Netscape is now part of their
base distribution.
