Kalle Olavi Niemitalo 388b1b0efd Define datarootdir in Makefile.config.in, for better Autoconf compatibility.
With Autoconf 2.60a, the default values of datadir, infodir, and
mandir refer to ${datarootdir}.  If Makefile.config.in does not define
datarootdir, Autoconf detects this and expands ${datarootdir} when it
substitutes expressions like @datadir@, but it also outputs the
following warning:

config.status: creating Makefile.config
config.status: WARNING:  /home/Kalle/src/elinks/Makefile.config.in seems to ignore the --datarootdir setting

According to a comment in config.status, "This hack should be removed
a few years after 2.60."  So it seems best to prepare for that now by
defining datarootdir = @datarootdir@ in Makefile.config.in.  Earlier
versions of Autoconf may leave that line unexpanded; but because the
makefiles do not directly refer to ${datarootdir}, there's no harm.

README

ELinks - an advanced web browser
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ELinks is an advanced and well-established feature-rich text mode web
(HTTP/FTP/..) browser. ELinks can render both frames and tables, is highly
customizable and can be extended via scripts. It is very portable and runs
on a variety of platforms.

The ELinks official website is available at

	http://elinks.cz/

Please see the SITES file for mirrors or other recommended sites.  If you
want to install ELinks on your computer, see the INSTALL file for further
instructions.

A good start point is documentation files available in doc/, especially the
file named index.txt.

If you want to request features or report bugs, see community information at
http://elinks.cz/community.html and feedback information available at
http://elinks.cz/feedback.html.

If you want to write some patches, please first read the doc/hacking.txt
document.

If you want to add a new language or update the translation for an existing
one, please read po/README document.

If you want to write some documentation, well, you're welcome! ;)



Historical notes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Initially, ELinks was a development version of Links (Lynx-like text WWW
browser), with more liberal features policy and development style.  Its purpose
was to provide an alternative to Links, and to test and tune various new
features, but still provide good rock-solid releases inside stable branches.

Why not contribute to Links instead?  Well, first I made a bunch of patches for
the original Links, but Mikulas wasn't around to integrate them, so I started
releasing my fork. When he came back, a significant number of them got refused
because Mikulas did not like them, as he just wouldn't have any use for them
himself.  He wants to keep Links with a relatively closed feature set and merge
only new features which he himself needs.  It has advantages that the tree is
very narrow and the code is small and contains very little bloat.

ELinks, on the contrary, aims to provide a full-featured web browser, superior
to both lynx and w3m and with the power (but not slowness and memory usage) of
Mozilla, Konqueror and similar browsers. However, to prevent drastic bloating
of the code, the development is driven in the course of modularization and
separation of add-on modules (like cookies, bookmarks, ssl, scripting etc).

For more details about ELinks history, please see
