Well, I don't know why you need to add mule-util.el expressly,
since Emacs has it as the standard Lisp library as far as I know.

I cannot imagine the case where it fails with the recent Emacs
22.  Even with Emacs 21.1 which is the oldest version of
Emacs that the recent emacs-w3m supports, the autoload for
`truncate-string-to-width' should be unnecessary because it has
the autoload cookie.  You can find the ``;;;###autoload'' line
just above the function definition of `truncate-string-to-width'
in the lisp/international/mule-util.el file, can't you?  What do
you get with the following two commands?

emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -eval '(message "%s" (locate-library "mule-util"))'

I got:


emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -eval '(message "%s" (describe-function (quote truncate-string-to-width)))'

I got:

Type C-x 1 to remove help window.
truncate-string-to-width is an autoloaded Lisp function in `mule-util'.
