First of all does w3m-load.el exist in one of Emacs' `load-path'
directories? To see it, perform this command:
M-x locate-library RET w3m-load RET
I don't know what's going on in w3m-el 1.4.4-9. I tried building
emacs-w3m from w3m-el_1.4.4.orig.tar.gz and w3m-el_1.4.4-9.diff.gz
and confirmed that the w3m-load.el file is surely generated, though.
But AFAICT it's very old. How about trying the most recent
development version of emacs-w3m? You can get it as:
See the README file for the installation. After performing autoconf,
you can see the configure options by:
And you can see what modules will be installed in what places by
performing (after running ./configure options...):
(IMHO, Expert users and developers don't seem to be interested
in the old emacs-w3m versions, so we all would be saved if you
would talk about the most recent one.)
