Unfortunately this is only half true. Sensible-browser is a script which
basically checks the BROWSER envvar, and uses that if it's there, then
checks for DISPLAY and if it's set, runs x-www-browser if it exists, 
www-browser in x-terminal-emulator if x-www-browser doesn't exist, and
www-browser if DISPLAY is unset. Hence the alternative to configure in
this case is x-www-browser.
