I had some trouble compiling the port. Apparently the -rpath option to
cc does not work as expected, but if I hack the configure script to
add -L/usr/local/lib before -lpng the port compiles. It looks like one
might also have to add softlinks in /usr/X11R6/lib for the png libraries.
Ok, I am suitably impressed! It doesn't do CSS, but what it does do is
pretty damn good for a 2.7BM binary with only moderate dynamic link
dependancies, and I can trivially add -static to the link line which
results in a measily 4.7MB static browser with NO DLL dependancies.
This is a winner in my book. All we need is a bit of dynamic content
to deal with the 'progress indicator' and we are set.
