I don't think I have the time to do so. Will you be planning to do this anyway? I think it would be wise, given that *all* sparc64 machines independent of platform will be unusable. > A much simpler patch is also possible if we can assume that > casting function pointers or integers to data pointers and back > preserves the values.

Is there such a thing as a POSIX compatible system? :P Do you have a patch? I could try it on OpenBSD, which is mostly POSIX compatible. > > However, some other parts of bug 764 have already been fixed in > elinks-0.12.

Just out of interest, how stable is elinks "unstable". As a rule of thumb OpenBSD would not accept "unstable" code, but maybe if backporting will be painful, it could be possible to use a snapshot for our packages system.
