I don't know what the `use-package' does, but it would probably
load w3m-search.elc that involves loading w3m.elc and others.
It can't be helped that loading w3m.elc takes a certain amount
of time, however

that's too long.  Does it take such a long time even if replacing
that `use-package' form with this?

  (require 'w3m-search)
  (add-to-list 'w3m-search-engine-alist
               '("duck" "https://duckduckgo.com/lite/?q=%s";))
  (setq w3m-search-default-engine "duck"))

Does just

(require 'w3m)

take over 20 seconds, too?
w3m.elc has been byte-compiled of cource, hasn't it?

Now I'm using Emacs of the revision 2912de1 and have no problem
on the Core i5 note PC.  Hmm...
