Which javascrip engine did you try to compile?

I did not succeed in getting Spidemonkey up and running myself.

(Simple Ecmascript Engine) which ELinks also has bindings for. So you
could try to compile SEE.

Hmm, you mean like wget'ing a tarball and so on?

FYI, ELinks doesn't supports the DOM interface, so you might say that it
is useless anyway. ;)
