To expand on this:
According to the above url:
The package was last developed 8.5 years ago.
It was added to elpa.gnu.org 3 years ago, with 4 commits.
The error you are seeing comes from one of those commits ("try to fix
compiler warnings"). "M-x w3" has the same error. So I can only
assume this package has not been tested or used by anyone since it was
added to elpa.gnu.org.
So I have to wonder what the value of having it there is.
I suggest you use M-x eww instead, and that if no-one wants to maintain
w3 it be removed from elpa.gnu.org.
