I missed the start of the thread, so I might be misisng valuable
information.

Both Debian and Ubuntu have a w3m-el-snapshot package that contains the
latest development snapshot of w3m-el. It works without error under
emacs 23 (including CVS versions aka 23.2). For those not running a
distro with a dev snapshot package of w3m-el, building form the latest
version should work fine with emacs 23.
