It looks like you haven't defined $(AR).

Re: w3m installation

What is the script you're using prior to 'make' ?

Why don't you use the configure script included in the w3m tar
package ?

I've been using w3m for a long time on HP-UX. It works 11.11,
11.23 and 11.31. I've never seen such an error after invoking
make.

As Dennis mentioned, $(AR) is not defined in your Makefile.

As of today, 0.5.2 is available. I tried to build it on 11.31. No
problems. It works as I expected.

Re: w3m installation

I tried "configure.sh" prior to "make". I don't understand, y I'm getting this error. Any clue?

Re: w3m installation

Did you define $(AR) in your Makefile ? If not, you should do it.

By the way, did you download w3m source code from sourceforge ?

http://sourceforge.net/projects/w3m/

NOTE: I can not find configure.sh in both w3m-0.5.1 and 0.5.2
source code files.

Re: w3m installation

I downloaded w3m 0.2.1 from hpux.connect.org. I will try what you suggested. What is AR variable, i have no clue in defining that..
