Log Message:
Update to 0.12pre6. Remove javascript option since

ELinks 0.12pre6

Security fix:

* bug 1124, CVE-2012-4545: Do not delegate GSSAPI credentials in HTTP
  Negotiate or GSS-Negotiate authentication.  Reported by Marko Myllynen.
  (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported GSSAPI; earlier
  releases are not vulnerable.)

Fixed crashes and hangs:

* critical bug 943: Don't let user JavaScripts call any methods of
  ``elinks.action'' in tabs that do not have the focus.  If a tab was
  closed with ``elinks.action.tab_close'' while it had pop-up windows,
  ELinks could crash; as a precaution, don't allow other actions
  either.  (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported
* critical bug 1083: Avoid an infinite loop when trying to decompress
  malformed data.  Caused by the bug 1068 fix in ELinks 0.12pre3.
* Fix a possible crash or information disclosure on big-endian 64-bit
  systems using HTTP Negotiate or GSS-Negotiate authentication.


* Dropped support for SEE.  (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release
  that supported SEE.)
* Guile 2.0.0 (released on 2011-02-16) changed its license to
  LGPLv3-or-later, which is not compatible with the GPLv2 that covers
  ELinks.  Also, Guile has deprecated many of the functions that
  ELinks calls.

Other changes:

* major bug 764: Correctly initialize options on big-endian 64-bit
* bug 983: Give preference to the Content-Type specified in the HTTP
  header over that specified via the HTML meta tag.
* bug 1084: Allow option names containing '+' and '*' in the option
* bug 1112: Map most numeric character references € ... Ÿ
  to graphical characters also when the output charset is UTF-8.
  (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported UTF-8 as the
  terminal charset, and ELinks 0.12pre5 was the first release that
  supported UTF-8 as the dump charset.)
* minor bug 1113: Fix a small memory leak if a mailcap file is malformed.
* minor bug 1114: Decode SGML entities and NCRs only once in link/@title
  and other attributes.
* build: Fix several warnings reported by GCC 4.7.1.  Harmless at
  runtime but could break the build if configured --enable-debug.
  (This version does not fix all such warnings.)
