0. I do not seem to know what the constraints are. But as a user it's a
bit disappointing to not get javascript which unnecessarily limits what
you can do using elinks, when upstream has provided the capability. Is it
likely to be supported in future?

There is wip/elinks-libmm which, too, is not compiling.

1. So should javascript option be removed from supported options
altogether i.e. this line:

  4 PKG_SUPPORTED_OPTIONS+= bittorrent nntp javascript finger gopher

2. Also, should these commented lines be removed?

 47 #.if !empty(PKG_OPTIONS:Mjavascript)
 48 #.include "../../lang/spidermonkey/"
 49 #CONFIGURE_ARGS+=   --with-spidermonkey
 50 #CONFIGURE_ARGS+=   --enable-sm-scripting
 51 #.else
 52 #CONFIGURE_ARGS+=   --without-spidermonkey
 53 #CONFIGURE_ARGS+=   --disable-sm-scripting
 54 #.endif
