so does this tell you anything?

actually, emacs-w3m is *not* the culprit; it's oort-gnus.  i moved the w3/
package out of the way and rebuilt todays CVS version.  now things work as
expected, without my extra "require".

| URLDIR=/usr/local/share/emacs/21.3.50/lisp/url/ W3DIR=no
| lispdir=/emacs/site-lisp/oort srcdir=. emacs-cvs -batch -q -no-site-file -l
| ./dgnushack.el -f dgnushack-compile
| No w3: Cannot open load file
| No MH variant found on the system!
| Loading subst-ksc...
| Loading subst-gb2312...
| and so on

oort gave some "informational messages", though, regarding the missing "w3".
will this haunt me and void my prayers for a stable gnus experience?  if so,
how?  if not, why does it scare me like that?



'uname -rms' => FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE i386, todays oort CVS version on emacs-CVS
