Thank you for pointing this out. I'm certainly not very familiar with
git, and, if I remember correctly, I did 'git checkout' from the elinks
directory. Maybe this isn't what I should have done to update it.
Anyway, now I was able to compile elinks with ECMAScript. I still have
some odd issues:

- Elinks crashes, and terminates, if activating some links in my digital bank
  account. This happens also if I turn ECMAscript off.

- Using Elinks from within screen, raises problems. The terminal beeps
  at every new page load, and the terminal is confused somehow, because
  it also beeps when changing screen number. I can workaround this by
  attaching to the screen session after setting TERM=vt100, but that
  leads to other odd situations with other programs, like emacs.

Is there a chance that this could be looked into?

I'm running Fedora 15.

Thanks, and regards,
