I installed Emacs-26 from Git and once again
I have to congratulate on such a super-simple
"manual" install!

However byte-compiling the Elisp from my
Emacs-24 showed the same (identical?) pattern
from my attempt with Emacs-27 JIT.

    1) Some errors with ERC, with no hints as
       to what to do;

    2) lots of outdated stuff with
       recommendations - easy to fix in other
       words; and

    3) complete breakage with Emacs-w3m, which
       I do have from the repositories just
       as I do Emacs-24.

With ERC, it looks a bit bad, but I'll take it
to gmane.emacs.erc.general. It looks bad
because ERC IIRC comes with Emacs, so stuff
shouldn't just disappear between versions with
no clue as to what to do - or am I wrong?

With Emacs-w3m, I'll ask at gmane.emacs.w3m how
to do a manual install and hook it to
a non-installed version of Emacs.
Because Emacs-w3m is a separate package in the
repositories, I understand there is a gap where
it might not work seamlessly, and that this is
what is actually happening.

I just thought I'd tell you all this FYI.

With Debian, despite using it for 10+ years,
I don't know how the progression of software
versions in their repos work. So when and/or
how will the new Emacs versions appear?

What I have is:

    Linux raspberrypi 4.9.35-v7+ #1014 SMP Fri Jun 30 14:47:43 BST 2017 armv7l
