Its not possible to add or access bookmarks in w3m. When trying to add a bookmark, you get the following error:

Can't load file:///$LIB/w3mbookmark

Probably this bug is related to  FS#2278 !

(Note: Also, /var/abs/network/w3m/PKGBUILD 15,15 says ./configure -prefix=/usr, should be --prefix=/usr)

Typo:  FS#2778 , not 2278

If i change -prefix to --prefix and

rm -r $startdir/pkg/usr/libexec

is commented out, everything works just fine. Is there some special reason for
deleting libexec/w3m? Other packages (like xscreensaver, octave) do install in
that directory, too.

This also solves  FS#2778
