    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.
