For more info, see:

 (i.e., there may be other problems which might be worth checking, e.g., the
cookie domain security checking.)

The elinks bugs have not been entered in RHL bugzilla, nor exist in many other
vendors' bugzillas, like Debian.

It might also be possible to just bump up the version to 0.9.3, but let's try to
avoid that if reasonable..

This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.

Fedora Legacy project has ended.  These will not be fixed by Fedora Legacy.
