Yes, and some modification is needed to fix this bug, that was not
necessary for i386.
I've build fixed deb package on kubrick.debian.org:~ukai/w3m/,
I run it on kubrick.debian.org (sparc architecture) and it seems to work fine!
But debhelper on kubrick.debian.org is old so lintian warns...
W: w3m: FSSTND-dir-in-usr usr/doc/
W: w3m: FSSTND-dir-in-usr usr/man/
Now, I'm requesting upgrading debhelper on kubrick.debian.org...
Can someone of sparc porters check/build it, please?
