| Description: advanced text-mode WWW browser - lightweight version
|  ELinks is a feature-rich program for browsing the web in text mode.  It is
|  like enhanced Lynx and Links.  The most noteworthy features of ELinks are:
|  .
|   * Lots of protocols (local files, finger, HTTP(S), FTP, IPv4/6 etc.)
|   * Persistent cookies, HTTP authentication and proxy authentication
|   * Tabbed browsing, good looking menus and dialogs, and key-binding manager
|   * History browsing and typeahead searches
|   * Tables and frames rendering, and configurable color support
|   * Compressed and background (non-blocking) downloads, and download resuming
|  .
|  This lite version contains no scripting or extra features but doesn't
|  depend on other libraries either, so it is useful for small systems.

As far as I know, this is not an ELinks issue per se.. Distribution
maintainers may create alternative packages that use less resources
and with fewer deendencies, presumably by disabling certain features
when they configure the package.

The above is from a debian "squeeze" install.

You may want to ask on your distribution's mailing list or IRC channel.
