  Since bad dependencies are a real issue worth taking care of ASAP, I've
taken care of it.  

-bash-3.00$ cat /var/ftp/pub/cygwin/release/w3m/setup.hint
sdesc: "A text based Web browser and pager"
ldesc: "w3m is a pager/text-based WWW browser. It is similar to Lynx,
but handles some things like page navigation differently. It can render tables
and frames (by converting frames into tables) or display a document given from
standard input.  It supports tabbed browsing.  It can execute local CGI
scripts without any HTTP server."
category: Text Web
requires: libgc ncurses openssl097 cygwin

  Will be propagating as the mirrors update...

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
