Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package elinks-0_4_2-7_1 from Fedora.

The compiler said

charsets.c(147): warning #187: use of "=" where "==" may have been 

The source code is

        BIN_SEARCH(unicode_7b, x, N_UNICODE_7B, u, s);

The definition of macro BIN_SEARCH is

#define BIN_SEARCH(table, entry, entries, key, result)
        long _s = 0, _e = (entries) - 1;
        while (_s <= _e || !((result) = -1)) {

Suspect this last line I have shown would be better as

        while (_s <= _e || !((result) == -1)) {

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. by source code inspection

No, this code looks right.  You are paying too much attention to the
compiler warnings and not enough to the intention of the author of the
code. :-)
