Aha! Thanks Stefan. The configure script had asked for various libraries
(a toolkit library, four image libraries, and somthing about curses)
which I installed for it, but it made no mention of wanting an XML
library. But looking back in the details of the configure log, I see
that it silently skips other (non-vital?) libraries that it doesn't
find.

Thanks, Ted. Yes, "M-x eww" prompts for an URL then gives the message

    error in process filter: eww-display-html: This function requires
    Emacs to be compiled with libxml2

So there it is! I clearly didn't build with the required library.

(I wish the Gnus MIME stuff was informative like that, instead of
silently failing!)

HTML rendering in Gnus (and from eww) is now working, so unless anyone
can see anything glaringly wrong in this list, I think I am all good
now. :)

[Totally irrelevantly, while writing this post, I am also happy to see
that pasting now replaces selection. :)]

Out of curiosity, what would imagemagick support give me?

Thank you all and best regards,
N.
