Someone has patched NCSA Mosaic to run on modern Linux systems (if that's not an oxymoron).

I couldn't get it to build on OSX because of Motif (and port install openmotif didn't help). I dug in a bit but then the smell of gasoline and burning flesh drove me away.

It's not entirely clear to me why this "port" was necessary, since the last time I checked (which was five years ago) it was still possible to run the old NCSA and NSCP binaries on modern Linux systems just by installing the a.out kernel module and a couple other files.
