To troubleshoot we need the exact errors - but it sounds like you are missing some libraries.

Please tell us your distro, the name of the tarball you got w3m in, and the exact errors. You can copy them inside code [] [/] tags. (Check the ./configure output for errors too.) Thank you.

You are missing a header file and/or a library.
Carefully read the documentation that comes in the tarball to see what else needs to be installed.

If you have a mainstream distribution, w3b is included with it's package repos. eg.

yum install w3b
apt-get install w3b

Installing from source is a good idea when you are concerned about security and performance... but then, use gentoo or slackware. With a managed distro (debianeque, red-hat-ist) it is best to install everything you need from repos unless absolutely unavailable. If nothing else, it means it will get updates regularly.

If you want to do some programming, make sure you install the header files and libraries.
