It is a browser?

Is that the "asterisk" that i referred to above, or something else?

Interesting. I didn't know it now had imap support. Pop too?

In any case, I am not interested in new features, useful though they
may be to other people! I simply want it to continue working as well
as it has always worked ...

Never read it, I'm afraid.  I don't use any language features.  I strip
everything to straight ascii, and mail in 8bit.  As a matter of fact, I
would like everything to be treated as 8bit and that's that, but
sometimes people send me things with weird charsets in, and then I have
to add another charset to the list of us-ascii equivs in the config file!
Otherwise I can't edit a reply, because elm gets rid of the contents,
claiming it can't understand them.

Quite possibly!

Well, if it's in the documentation, I should probably enter a bug
report :-). I'm quite willing to translate, provided I can find out
what it was intended to mean in the first place.

I however have been unsuccessful so far in getting elm to compile with
only  dotlocking, it appears. At any rate, this version (95) is
currently hanging and counting up to 7 trying to lock my mail
in an NFS directory mount:

 Timed out on locking mailbox.  Leaving program.

 You have new mail in /usr/spool/mail/ptb
 sh-2.03$ ls -ld /var/spool/mail
 drwxrwxrwt    6 mail     mail       164864 Jun  5 16:19 /var/spool/mail
 sh-2.03$ ls -ld /usr/bin/elm
 -rwxr-sr-x    1 root     mail       396032 Jun  4 17:04 /usr/bin/elm

and I don't see any reason why. This looks like it's not doing
dotlocking.  I've mounted the directory nolock, but no change:

  arpa:/var/mail on /var/spool/mail type nfs

What I did was go into the Configure file and add 


which as far as I can see, should do the trick. What's wrong with using
an ordinary autoconf? How am I supposed to set particular options?
