I can't reproduce it any more either.  I deleted the w3m package,
restarted Emacs, installed the w3m package again, and restarted Emacs
again a second time.  No warning.

Dunno if the warning was related to w3m.  To be clear, it appeared when
starting Emacs.  Several times AFAIR, but it disappeared without any

I always try to let my init file depend on as few things as possible.
If I have to figure out what's wrong, and I can't use my known Emacs
working environment I get frustrated.  In this case it's easy to avoid.
What's so useful in breaking Emacs startup when w3m is not installed?

I didn't know, and didn't try to find out.

Ok, I hope it's reliable.  Anyway, works fine here, and wrapped in
`eval-and-compile' it's also enough for compiling my init file.
