You just need to rebuild netscape-base-4 and install a
/etc/netscape4/config with SET_DEFAULTS enabled and the relevant
/etc/netscape4/defaults/ (if you are going to install a default
preferences.js file, keep in mind to install one *WITHOUT*
browser.startup.license_accepted. Other than that, you can do nifty
things like setting the prefered language to "de", set the default
homepage and so on...

Ugh. Yes, I can see it's less work, but it doesn't look that clean,
