 ....would you please try this? It takes forever to make,

Just tested this felinks build with python. Ended up with:

As observed by sgerwk earlier:

.... It should compile and work, but there is still something strange about it 
(the unusual long time for configure and make, the linker option that needs to be removed).

The compile took a lot of time, and shoot the cpu usage to 100% several times, when it was doing something like :

    lto1 -quiet -dumpdir ./ -dumpbase elinks.ltrans ...

I managed to see some warning messages like, ex:

    /usr/bin/ld: lib.o: in function `l_tmpname':
    core.c:(.text+0x8a7c5): warning: the use of `tempnam' is dangerous, better use`mkstemp'

But it did compile and felinks itself, seems to be working fine.

As far as python goes,

 ....I am not sure the python hooks actually work with it....

I ran it with elinks -verbose X and tested, and It seems to be loading, the hooks defined in It even complained about some missing python dependencies, theses scripts require (python wikipedia and python duckduckgo)

I could not see any effect on the rendered html, but I think it's a problem with the scripts, not the felinks python support itself. Needs more thourough testing
