w3m is a text-based web browser as well as a pager like `more' or `less'. With w3m you can browse web pages through a terminal emulator window (xterm, rxvt or something like that). Moreover, w3m can be used as a text formatting tool which typesets HTML into plain text.

I just installed w3m on to use it as HTML filter for mutt - and got the following:

$ w3m
w3m: error while loading shared libraries: libgc.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After some searching, I then installed your "gc" package as well, but that didn't change anything. Finally, after some more digging, I did this:

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libgc.so /usr/lib/libgc.so

After that, w3m worked, but this is of course an ugly workaround... What can I do to solve this "properly"? Thanks in advance!
