I can't really help with 5.4 as I am still waiting for RSI (UK) to send
me my copy. But I have 5.3 working perfectly here and I can't imagine 5.4
is all that different.

I would be very surprised if 5.4 required libc5. Are you certain it said
that libc.so.5 was required? IDL 5.3 uses libc6.

This is the list of library dependencies I have for IDL 5.3:

	libidl.so.5.3 => ./libidl.so.5.3 (0x40015000)
	libMesaGLU.so.3 => ./libMesaGLU.so.3 (0x40662000)
	libMesaGL.so.3 => ./libMesaGL.so.3 (0x40678000)
	libXp.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6 (0x4075d000)
	libXpm.so.4 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4 (0x40765000)
	libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x40772000)
	libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x4077f000)
	libSM.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 (0x407c7000)
	libICE.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6 (0x407d0000)
	libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x407e6000)
	libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x408a9000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x408c6000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x409bb000)
	/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

My libXpm comes from the xpm-3.4k-2 package.

Where did you get your libc.so.5 and libXpm.so.4 from?
